Kosher or Not, This Homemade Matzo Recipe Will Help You Get Through Quarantined Passover
The main difference between homemade matzo and the boxed stuff is that homemade matzo actually tastes good—and there’s a reason for that. Strictly speaking, Mayer’s recipe, which includes flour, honey, eggs, olive oil, salt and black pepper, does not meet kosher guidelines. Those rules demand that matzo be made out of nothing more than flour and water, not even salt. The “bread of affliction” also has to be mixed and baked in less than 18 minutes, theoretically simulating food preparation before the Jewish people’s hasty exodus from Egypt.
