- 10 cups water
- 12 garlic cloves, peeled
- 3 medium carrots, cut into chunks
- 3 small turnips, peeled and cut into chunks
- 2 medium onions, cut into wedges
- 2 medium parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks
- 1 medium leek (white portion only), sliced
- 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
- MATZO BALLS:
- three large eggs, separated
- 3 tablespoons water or chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons rendered chicken fat
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
- 3/4 cup matzo meal
- 8 cups water
- For the broth, in a stockpot, couple the first 12 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 120 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, hammer the egg yolks at high intensity for 2 minutes or until thick and lemon-colored. Pour the water, chicken fat, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Whisk egg whites on high until stiff peaks form in another bowl and fold into a yolk mixture. Overlap in matzo meal. Cover and refrigerate for at least 60 minutes or until thickened.
- In another stockpot, bring water to a boil; add remaining salt. Dip eight rounded tablespoonfuls of matzo ball dough into boiling water. Lower heat; cover and simmer for half an hour or until a toothpick inserted into a matzo ball comes out clean (do not lift cover while simmering).
- Drain broth, discarding vegetables and seasonings. Firmly remove matzo balls from the water with a slotted spoon; place one matzo ball in each soup bowl. Add broth.
