Lipton Kosher’s Secret to Perfect Matzo Balls

Englewood Cliffs—Ask any Jew with a Bubbe and they will tell you that their grandmother definitely takes the prize for the best matzo balls, or kneidels (kneidlech), as affectionately known in Yiddish. Lipton Kosher is out to make that a universal truth this Passover. Whether you prefer dense or fluffy, Lipton Kosher will help ensure that your matzo balls are just like your Bubbe’s.

Originating in Eastern Europe, the kneidel is one of the most timeless Passover symbols. It is a food steeped in years of Jewish tradition. In recent years the matzo ball has created quite a stir in the culinary world: Are matzo balls supposed to be sinkers or floaters? Is it a food to be modernized with spinach or tomato paste, or is it a sacred dish that should remain untouched? These discussions have led to a serious revival of the kneidel. Many traditionalists will strictly stick to the standard recipe, but others prefer to modernize recipes with herbs and vegetables. In fact, some even add matzo balls to other varieties of soup, such as pumpkin and zucchini. Whatever your taste buds call for, the matzo ball mix, such as Lipton Kosher, offers the versatility to recreate your Bubbe’s recipe or venture along the matzo ball road less traveled.

“Passover is a time in which families gather and enjoy many meals together. Matzo ball soup is such a classic dish, and a mix that is versatile enough to be used in different recipes definitely makes life easier for those spending hours in the kitchen,” said Brent Malone, Associate Brand Building Manager at Unilever International North America, which carries the Lipton Kosher brand, including the matzo ball mix. “We are happy to offer a tasty solution this Passover and help enhance the Jewish traditions.”

Also on offer this Passover are Lipton Kosher Chicken Flavor Consommes, which make a delicious addition to your poultry, meat and vegetable dishes. All Lipton Kosher Passover products are certified under the Orthodox Union (OU) and can be found at mainstream and independent kosher supermarkets across the USA.
