How to make it
- Place the chicken into a large pot with the breast side down.
- Fill with enough cold water to reach about 3 inches from the top of the pot.
- Add the onion, carrot, parsnip, celery and dill.
- Bring to a simmer over medium heat, and cook, partially covered for 2 hours.
- Do not let the soup boil.
- Skim any fat from the top of the soup, and add the garlic cloves. Partially cover, and simmer for another 2 hours for best flavour.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the matzo meal, eggs, oil, salt, and 1/4 cup of the broth from the chicken soup.
- Refrigerate for about 20 minutes to set up.
- Bring a separate pot of water to a rolling boil.
- Roll the matzo mixture into about 16 balls. Wet your hands to keep the dough from sticking to them.
- Drop the balls into boiling water, cover, and cook for about 35 minutes.
- While the matzo balls are cooking, strain the broth from the chicken soup.
- Return the broth to the pot.
- Remove the bones and skin from the chicken and cut into pieces. Return to the soup, or leave the soup as a broth, and reserve the chicken for other uses.
- Remove the matzo balls from the water, and serve in the hot chicken soup.
- Cooking Time is 4 hours
- Note: These matzoh balls are 'sinkers'. These are traditional matzoh balls, as this recipe was passed down when there was a need to make them as heavy as possible to feed a hungry family during lean times. Cut the matzoh meal by 1/2 cup to lighten the load."
