Matzah Ball

The record for the world's biggest matzah ball was set in -- where else? -- New York today.

Weighing 267 pounds and made from 1,000 eggs, 80 pounds of margarine, 200 pounds of matzah meal, and 20 pounds of chicken base, the giant matzah ball easily set the Guinness record. The ball, which stood three feet high, was baked by Noah's Ark Original Deli in an oversized kitchen in New Jersey and then given a police escort to Manhattan where it was unveiled and then devoured by a waiting crowd.
