Anybody else excited about matzoh season?

I know it's tempting to make it all about the peeps this time of year but last week we got a 5-lb box of matzoh for free for spending $50 at our supermarket.

Now it's matzoh galore. Matzoh with butter and cheese, matzoh with cream cheese. Last night I had chicken salad on matzoh for dinner!

I know it's tasteless but it's such a good mechanism of delivery for something yummy. It has the perfect crunchiness and it's so stiff and serious, with the lightest touch of salt.

I love matzoh season!

Not a fan of matzah. Lots of childhood memories of eating my dry peanut butter-on-matzah sandwich at school (followed by a couple of canned macaroons), all the while watching the other kids feasting on their Easter candy. However, I do love matzah ball soup and just made my first batch of the season using my great grandmother's recipe.

Matzoh Brie... Love it... (My mom called it Matzoh Egg)

I stock up now so we can have Matzoh for a while.

Matzoh with butter is a snack around here.

Never made Matzoh ball soup, but I am going to attempt it this year.

I saw a recipe recently that called for melting chocolate on matzah (matzo?/matzoh??) and topping it with toffee chips or slivered almonds. Perhaps I'll try it and see if it helps me overcome my early childhood Easter candy envy.

happened,

When I taught at a Jewish preschool we used to make that with the kids. Delicious!

I hope it helps cure you of your Easter candy envy!

And, I bought Jelly rings today!!!

Bernie the Passover Bunny used to come to our house every year so my kids wouldn't ever experience Easter candy envy.

That sounds really good to me. The peeps are way to sweet for me and I hate marshmallows anyway so maybe I need to look for some matzoh at the grocery store.

If you want to try good Passover treats try Joyva Ring Jells or macaroons, any kind. I bought almond macaroons. So good.

Matzoh... unleavened bread eaten by Jews during Passover to celebrate the Exodus from Egypt when Pharaoh set the Jews free.

Because the Jews had to leave in a hurry they didn't have time to let their bread rise and had to bake it unleavened.

It's a big dry cracker

Imagine eating a paperback book with no cover. (Yikes!)

The stuff you put on it makes it taste good...like, matzah soaked in egg and fried - you sprinkle it with sugar before you eat it, or dip it in sour cream or apple sauce like you do with a latke. Almost anything that has some taste and prevents all the moisture in your body being drawn to the matzah.

It's a very serious commandment, though. Aside from some of the 10 commandments, for Jews, eating matzah at least once during Passover could be the single most observed commandment of the 613.

I love Matzoh Brei. Brings back a lot of childhood memories. My dad would make it for me and jelly to dip it in. Was really the only thing he could make. The day he tried to make me French toast and accidentally used paprika instead of cinnamon....yeah...stick with matzoh Brei.

Yep...he didn't do it on purpose though! I started eating it and I was like, "why does this French toast taste like fish?" But he could make a mean matzoh brei!

I think I grew up in one of the few Catholic homes that observed Passover. Our favorite thing to do with matzoh was break it in pieces in a bowl, pour milk over it, and douse it with cinnamon and sugar for breakfast.

Million- the "authentic" way in our house was always the Manischweitz box!! LOL

We are now the proud owners of several boxes of matzoh...luckily I'm still battling morning sickness and the dryer, blander the food, the better!

I've made matzoh balls from scratch but this year I did it from the Manishewitz box and they were probably the best matzoh balls I've ever made!

Of course, my grandmother used to make them from scratch AND gefilte fish from scratch and those were THE BEST!

Yum!!!

I wanted to buy some but I refused to pay the price they are charging for it.

Too bad my grandmother's been dead for 11 years, otherwise I'd ask her to make me some .

ETA That grandma lived to be 104 years old, btw .
