Pesach is a family time, a time of homecoming, an opportunity for family and friends to gather together to share an ancient tradition. Pesach in our home is directly and strongly connected with Knaidlach. Those little soft and delicious matzah balls.
My Aba (father in Hebrew) used to make the best ones! I miss him every day. But on the Seder table I miss him much more. So here is me, sharing with you a beloved family recipe and tradition.
May your Seder table make beautiful memories to last you a lifetime and longer….
