I have been running around Vancouver looking for Matzo meal. The large Jewish deli on Granville has been out everytime I’m in the neighbourhood. Today I found the Matzos on the North Shore. I ground them in my Thermomix in 10 seconds and made matzo meal. I improvised my recipe because last week when I made my free range organic chicken stock, I couldn’t find the matzo meal so I froze it. This week I made a lovely beef stock from veal bones and beef ribs so I’m using that. I’m not traditional so we’ll see how it tastes. Also I tried steaming the matzo balls on the Varoma instead of boiling them in water. They were a little hard so I recommend boiling them in salted water for 20-25 minutes. I’m not Jewish, however since I had this at the famous Katz’s deli in New York, I have wanted to make it.
