Matzo Balls (Kneidlach)

Matzo Balls (Kneidlach)

This recipe is a mainstay of the Pesach (or Passover) meal on the Jewish Seder. It is one of many courses that those around the Seder table consume on one of the commemorative nights of Pesach. It is always regarded as a challenge to make a light matzo ball!
