Can't cook like your mother, but still want to offer the matzo balls just like mamma used to make?
Well, you can always fake it by buying a glass jar of Manischewitz Matzo Balls in Broth.
Expect to pay around £2.50 and for that you get a dozen of the tastiest matzo balls this side of the little village your grandparents came from in eastern Europe.
Of course matzo balls are not just for chicken soup, indeed they work very well with most types of soup including tomato, mushroom and cabbage. And being parev, they can be used in both meaty and non-meaty meals.
But, it's chicken soup with which matzo balls are synonymous and adding them to your Jewish penicillin will get questions from folks asking how you managed to make them taste so good.
The balls are a decent size, serve two with a soup and it will be a filling starter, go for three and it becomes almost a meal in itself.
Another tasty treat to add to your grocery cupboard.
