How to Make Knaidlach (Matzo Balls)
- Fill a large pot 3/4 full of water and add 1 tablespoon salt, bring to a boil. Wet hands with cold water so the batter doesn't stick, shape a bit of mixture into balls the size of ping-pong ball. They will double in size when cooked. Gently place in boiling water, decrease heat so that water simmers briskly and cover pot. Cook for 25 minutes, don't remove lid. Remove balls from water and serve with the chicken soup.
