Chicken Soup Cures a Cold! Really?!
There may be no cure for the common cold, but a steaming bowl of chicken soup is the next best thing. Indeed, there are scientific studies that have shown this to be true.
So what is the secret behind this magic cure?
Is it one of the ingredients – the chicken, onions, the parsnips, turnips, carrots, celery, parsley, salt, and pepper? How about the fantastic fluffy matzah balls a.k.a. kneidelach? Or is it the combination of all these ingredients? Nobody knows for sure (not even Shazak), but even if the chicken soup doesn’t cure your cold (hachoo!), it sure tastes delicious – especially at the Shabbos meal!
