Our home-made matzoh

If you get tired of perfect square regulation matzot with holes in perfect parallel lines, you can make your own. It won't be so perfect but it will taste better. Of course, it's Reform Jew matzoh cause we have only one kitchen and we just use regular flour.

You can only spend 18 minutes on this so the trick is, make only a little bit at a time. The good news is, it's very easy. I make it a few times a day. It actually only takes about 10-12 minutes total. I just made it for Zed's breakfast, and it's done already.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

3/4 cup of flour
1/4 cup water (actually a little more)
salt to taste

Mix. Roll out very thin. Prick with fork lots of times. Bake on a nonstick cookie tin for two or three minutes. Eat with charoset (see yesterday's recipe).

Don't forget to turn the oven off.

thanks for the reminder to turn the oven off...

i have a tendency to wonder why the house is so warm a few hours later...

That looks good. We're five days into matza here and getting mighty tired of it. You know that scene in "Forest Gump" where the guy is listing all the ways to serve shrimp? It's kind of like that, but with matza.
