Passover (aka Pesach) is a major Jewish holiday commemorating the story of the Israelites’ departure from ancient Egypt and Egyptian slavery. During this holiday, observant Jews do not eat leavened bread for eight days.
Matzo Ball Soup comes from unleavened bread (Matzo) and is a traditional dish served at Passover mealtimes.
Matzo Ball Soup is also popular during other Jewish holidays including Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Purim, Sukkot, and Shabbat.
Matzo Ball Soup is made with chicken soup broth and is jokingly referred to as Jewish Penicillin for its efficacy as a remedy for illness including viral infections, influenza, stomach problems, and more.
A popular 2012 study concluded that chicken soup may lessen the symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections. Turns out, a hot and tasty bowl of Matzo Ball Soup may have positive effects on your immune system as well as your mental perspective.
Hungry for a Nosh
Whether it’s a Jewish holiday or just another day, really, anytime is great for eating Matzo Ball Soup. This can serve as a snack between meals or as an appetizer to a full course meal.
So, when are the best times to eat Matzo Ball Soup? Anytime! Whether you’re feeling less than 100%, it’s a Jewish holiday, or you’re just plain hungry.
