Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Paul saw his Mother make this soup many times during his growing up years. He taught me how to make it. His Mother made it often and would always call and ask if we wanted some Jewish chicken soup. We never turned it down. I would bet many of you are not familiar with Matzo Balls, but, that is my favorite part of the soup. It is similar to a dumpling & shaped like a meat ball and made from matzo meal. Most of the larger groceries do carry Manischewitz Matzo Meal. Chicken soup is basic to Jewish cooking because of its perceived healing qualities. Maybe calling chicken soup "Jewish penicillin" isn't so dumb. After all, when chicken soup is made, especially for someone who is ill, it is an act of love and love and concern can be the best medicine in the world.
