My grandma and mom have been making this soup as long as I can remember and I look forward to it every year. We were all a bit under the weather on New Year’s Eve and my mom made a batch. We drove 10 long hours home the next day and it still sounded so good that I made another batch this week. Many people dub this kind of soup “Jewish Penicillin“. While the scientific verdict is still out on its magical healing powers, this soup sure does taste good when you’re sick or even just to warm you up on a cold day.
What You’ll Need:
Whole Chicken (Already cut up or whole)
3-4 Tbsp. Chicken Bouillon (I use granulated)
Carrots, peeled and cut into chunks (or baby carrots to make it easier)
Turnips, peeled and cut into chunks
Large Sweet Onion, chopped
Matzo Ball Mix (eggs and vegetable oil will be needed to make these)
Cheese Cloth or Mesh Strainer
Salt and Pepper to taste
Matzo Ball Mix boxes look something like this and it’s usually found in the Kosher or Specialty foods section at the grocery store. Most boxes contain two packets of Matzo Ball mix.
