I got them from the food pantry and they look like giant saltine crackers without salt on them.

They are good with peanut butter on them.
What are matzo balls?
Quoting EireLass:What are matzo balls?
Matzo ball soup ... YUM! You can buy a box of the stuff (see 2nd pic). I add chicken and sliced carrots and celery to mine.
When making the matzo balls, add about 2 teaspoons of water plus the oil, egg, etc. Makes a fluffier matzo ball.
I wasn't sure either so it seems like we've both learned something! lol
Matzoh is the traditional Jewish unleavened bread required to be eaten during the 8 days of Passover, along with other traditional foods, horseradish, bitter herbs, etc, all symbolic of the time the Hebrews fled Egypt during the reign of the Pharoh, Ramses. Due to their haste, they had to make bread without yeast. If you've ever seen the movie, The Ten Commandments, you know the story. You can use matzoh as crackers. I'm not Jewish but I enjoy them with butter, or plain with a large glass of milk. You can crush them into soup, like crackers, or serve them at dinner instead of bread. They are also good spread with peanut butter &/or jelly, or egg or tuna salad or cheese spreads. Nice for dipping too instead of chips.
Matzoh balls are also delicious! They are sort of a dumpling; I think they are made with matzoh meal but you can make them from a mix also (as pictured above). My brother (whose wife is Jewish) used to make them with seltzer instead of water; it made them fluffy & light. He used them in his MIL's homemade chicken soup - delish!
