When was matzo first used and why?

The first mention of matzo is in the story of the Old Testament, during the Exodus from Egypt (Exodus 12:39). With Pharoah and his army in pursuit the Israelites didn't have enough time to let their bread rise, so they rushed out with flat, unleavened bread. In addition, it is referred to elsewhere as "poor man's bread," or a reminder of how they ate in Egypt; this implies that it was in fact part of a slave diet as well.

There are many estimates as to the date of the Exodus; the most popular is around 1440 B.C.

Correction: The first mention is in Genesis 19:3. Lot baked matzoh for his guests, the angels, who came to rescue his family from Sodom. Matzoh was a flat bread baked without leavening and can be baked very quickly since it doesn't need time to rise.

What stores carry Nabisco Cracker Meal?

The company discontinued this item - it is very hard to find and you won't be able to soon. I have recipes that have been in the family forever and know they will never be the same without Nabisco cracker meal - it is very sad!! I don't know how you can get a company to change it's mind. Any suggestions?

The best way is to contact their Customer Service department. The more people that do, the more they understand how much an item is missed. It's no guarantee, of course, but it's a better chance than saying nothing or saying it in the wrong place (to friends, on these forums, to your grocery store manager, to mom lol).

Flat Breads

Why would matzo meal be not for Passover?

Chassidim do not eat any foods made with matzah or matzah by-products where the matzah was mixed with water or any liquids before being cooked. This is because they believe that there's a chance that the matzah wasn't baked through and there's potential for raw flour to be mixed with liquid. This is referred to as 'gebrokts'.

Why is flat bread eaten by Jewish people at passover?

Except for the Seder meal (the formal meal at the arrival of Passover on the first evening), there is no rule in Judaism that requires eating matzah. But there is a rule (Exodus ch.12) that during the entire holiday, Jews are not to buy, own, cook, bake, sell, or even see in their possession, any food or drink that contains any leavened or fermented ingredients of the five types of grain (wheat, barley, rye, oats, spelt). So, during the holiday, if an observant Jew does decide to eat bread, it's the unleavened/unfermented kind, which never rises and therefore comes out flat. It's called 'matzah'.

Note that the Vilna Gaon (Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilnius, 1720-1797) taught that although we are not required to eat matzoh during most of Passover, nonetheless one receives the merit of observing a positive command each time one does eat matzoh.

How did matzo get its name?

The name Matzah is a biblical Hebrew word, found in Exodus 12:8, Exodus 12:18, Deuteronomy 16:3 and Deuteronomy 16:8. The root from which this comes is matzaz, meaning slurped out or drained out, perhaps a reference to the fact that Matzah is typically baked to the point of being hard and dry. Matzah may be made with any of the classical bread grains, wheat, spelt, oats, barley or rye (or any mixture of them). The key thing that distinguishes it from other bread is that water and flour are mixed and then immediately cooked. Jewish tradition requires that the interval from the time of contact between flour and water to completion of baking be under 18 minutes. Matzah meal is not the flour used to bake matzah, it is the flour made by grinding up baked matzah. Baking carmelizes some of the starch (making brown spots) and this changes the flavor of the meal as compared with normal flour. Matzah meal is used by most Jews during Passover for dishes that would normally be made with flour, such as cakes, brownies or dumplings.

Can you use seltzer to make matzo balls?

I don 't recommend it but regular water works fine


A lot of people use seltzer because the carbonation is supposed to act as a leavenner. In reality though, don't put any water at all in your matzoh balls, they'll be lighter if you use just oil and egg.

What does matzo mean in the Passover?

Matzo is unleavened bread. It is eaten to commemorate the unleavened bread of the Exodus, when the Israelites left Egypt so fast that they didn't have time to wait for the bread to rise. Now, it reminds us to seek to live a godly lifestyle, without sin: as leavening makes the bread "puffed-up," we want to eliminate sins in our lives that make us "puffed-up."

Can flour be substituted for matzo meal?

No, matzoh meal is the equivalent of bread crumbs. Also, if it's during Passover, raw flour cannot be used.
