The Great Matzo Ball Debate: Do You Prefer Floaters Or Sinkers?

We’re less than a month away from Passover, and many of us are already dreaming of fluffy matzo balls in our soup.

But like most Jewish traditions, there’s a great debate surrounding matzo balls: That of floaters vs. sinkers.

Last year, our food editor Liza Schoenfien took to Twitter and found that 60 percent of our readers prefer fluffy floaters over heavy sinkers.

I don’t know about you, but 60-40 is too close for my comfort.

Help us settle the debate: Let us know what you think!
