Happy Passover! If you’re in the midst of celebrating this holiday and its message of freedom and joy, you know that matzo is always a major component of the meals prepared during this season. The crackerlike matzo represents the unleavened bread the Jews took with them when they fled slavery in Egypt, leaving the land of the Pharaoh so quickly they had no time to allow their bread to rise. And one of the most traditional recipes in the Jewish cookbook is matzo ball soup, rich pure chicken broth filled with delicious round dumplings made of matzo meal. To cook, and to eat, matzo ball soup, at Passover or at any other time, is to pass down a longstanding tradition and feel a deep and comforting connection with one’s family and with the past.
That, of course, is as true of Ruth as of anyone else who grew up Jewish, and now she’s shared her recipe for Matzo Ball Soup with Fox 8—and with you. Watch the video and get the recipe here. Try it at your Seder, and chag kasher v’same’ach!
