Source: My grandmother
Serves: Varies

3 large carrots

Matzo ball recipe

Prepare all fresh vegetables and place in 3-quart sauce pan. Add canned vegetables if desired.

When raw vegetables test tender, drain out all but 1/4 of the water and add milk until just before the top of the pan. Add 1/2 to 1 stick of butter and cook on low flame until butter is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste.

In the meantime, prepare matzo ball mixture. Drop matzo balls into bubbling soup. These Kneidelach are delicious and an experience you won't soon forget.

Poster's Notes:
As Shavuout approaches I am reminded of one of the most delicious treats in the world, matzo balls boiled in a milchig soup. My grandmother used to make it and the few times I did it I never measured, I just put it together. Here is the suggested recipe, but as is the case so many times, the recipe is not written in stone and can be adapted.
