Directions:
Mix matzo according to directions on the box (makes 24 balls). Boil Matzo balls in chicken stock (2 tbsp Osems chicken style consommé) added to pot of water) for about 1 hr with the lid on, taking care not to boil over. Balls will come to the top; stir gently to avoid sticking.
Remove balls from the water with a slotted spoon. Place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper that has been sprayed with Pam. Freeze. When frozen, the balls can be placed in a plastic bag and stored in the freezer.
To serve, remove the balls from the bag and place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper sprayed with Pam; spread out and thaw.
Add balls to boiling water with 2 tbsp Osem's stock. When hot, add to hot soup. Also, slice carrots that were saved from the soup. Add 2-3 slices to each bowl along with 1 or 2 matzo balls.

Soup:
Put chicken in a large pot of salted water. Place carrots, onions and celery into pot. Boil (medium) until chicken is tender. Remove chicken foam as it accumulates. Strain soup and set chicken aside. Let soup cook with vegetables for another 15-20 minutes. Salt to taste. Remove vegetables and save carrots for soup later.
Let soup cool and store in large jars with lids in the freezer. Chicken fat will rise to top and can be removed prior to using.
