Matzo Balls #2 (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
4 tablespoons rendered chicken fat (*you can use plain oil, but its not nearly as good. I use Empire Kosher rendered chicken fat – pre-frozen in tubs)
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup gluten-free flour
¾ cup dried potato flakes
- Blend eggs and chicken fat (with fork, or with Cuisinart).
- Add dry ingredients, and mix.
- Cover and let sit in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Have briskly boiling water ready.
- Roll 1 ½ inch balls from mixture using wet hands, drop into boiling water.
- When all balls are in water, use a long spoon to make sure none of the balls are stuck to the bottom of the pot.
- Cover pot with lid, and cook over medium heat for 35 minutes.
- Using slotted spoon, transfer balls directly to soup, or to freeze for later use, transfer to waxpaper lined cookie sheet and freeze until hard, then transfer into zip lock freezer bags.
Makes about 11 matzo balls. Recipe can be easily doubled or halved.
