• 1 1/4 c. matzo meal

• Oil


In medium bowl, beat the egg whites until slightly stiff. In a small bowl, beat the yolks with the 1/2 cup cold water water until foamy. Add the egg whites to the yolks and beat until combined.

Add the chicken fat, salt, pepper, parsley and ginger to the egg mixture and beat well to form an emulsion.

Stir in the matzo meal with a fork until combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Lightly grease your hands with a little oil and form the balls. Gently drop them into the simmering water. Cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes. Do not remove the top from the pot before the time is up. Gently transfer the matzo balls to the chicken soup before serving.
