The matza ball debate pales in comparison with the gefilte fish divide: sweet or pepper?

By the way, they should float. FLOAT FLOAT FLOAT.

How big are matzo balls ideally supposed to be — I mean, in rough terms of “marble,” “golf ball,” “tennis ball,” or what? And spare me the obvious joke answer: “depends on how old the matzo was when slaughtered.”)

(I was once “served” a matzo-tennis-ball in an NYC diner — I mean, it was a bowl of soup with ONE huge sodden sphere of matzo crumbs sitting in it. But this was like my first month living in NYC; I’d never had matzo-ball soup before and just assumed that any NYC diner would offer an “authentic” version. This was before I found out that the vast majority of bagels sold in NYC are — bleh! — steamed, and therefore not “New York style” bagels.)
