Knaidel was the winning word in the National Spelling Bee this year. To honor the winner, HaDassah has let us use her Matzah Ball Soup recipe!
4 large KOL Foods chicken breasts (or darkmeat if you prefer)
A whole bunch of celery, sliced
About 8 large carrots, peeled and sliced, or a large bag of baby carrots (less work)
2 parsnips, peeled and sliced
2 large onions – diced or sliced
Salt and Pepper to taste
A decent amount of fresh chopped dill
3 bay leaves
2 quarts KOL Foods broth
Put all the ingredients into the enamel pot, cover with broth and top off with water. Boil till a rolling boil, and then simmer for a few hours until time to make the matzah balls (also called knaidels).
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup cold water
Pinch of salt
Approx one cup of Matzah Meal
Mix all the ingredients together till you get a consistency of wet cement. Refrigerate for an hour. Boil up the soup to a rolling boil, form mixture into balls and drop in to soup gently. They will fluff up as they cook. Simmer for at least an hour.
