FF matzo balls!


The ONLY recipe for FF matzo balls I've ever seen is actually the one passed 
down through my family:

2 eggs
1/2 cup matzo meal
1/2 tsp. salt

Beat eggs until frothy.  Add matzo meal & salt, stirring well after each 
addition.  Let stand a couple of minutes to thicken.  Roll lightly into 
balls (about 1 T) and add to boiling, salted water.  Cook covered 15 - 45 

This makes about 5 matzo balls that can be frozen.

I can't seem to master the rolling part - my matzo balls always seem to 
come out too hard or so soft they fall apart.  My grandmother once told 
me to add 1/2 tsp. of baking powder to make them fluffier, but that 
hasn't seemed to help me.  But, they've always been delicious when "other 
generations" (i.e., mom, grandmother, etc.) have made them...Guess I just 
need practice.

Good luck!
