According to the cRc, Flax seeds are not kitniot and only need special certification if they are purchased ground.
I have not yet been able to get an answer on chia :-(

what is regular matza ball made out of? corn?
i always thought it was incredibly gross in the first place. most jewish food, i don't even know WHY someone would want to replicate it!!
well, the foods i have tried anyway.
sept for those bagels and locks (sp?)
i'm half jew in heritage, but have not tasted barely any jewish food i have enjoyed. i haven't been exposed very much to the culture though. it all looks kind of greasy and unapatizing.
i liked to eat pickles at the deli though. ^_^

regular matzah is made of wheat, barley, spelt, oat or rye. Usually wheat.
Not sure about matzah balls, do you have a dehydrator recipe for flax matzah balls?

Maybe you had some really horrible dense yucky ones. But if done right they are fluffy and Yummy like a dumpling. Maybe you are thinking of geflite a fish. which is GROSS blagh. Matza balls are made with matza meal which is the same thing the crackers are made from plus egg and a little broth or water. You boil them and then put then in more broth.
But since I am raw no matza balls for me. Thats ok i only ate them one time a year anyway.

i know what it is, and the gefilties. D=
i just think it is nasty, and on top of it it looks kind of yucky, too.
like this is what aliens would eat.
i didn't want to eat it, but my parents tell me to try everything once and never say yuck to the food.
gefilties.... i have NEVER tried that... oh god... they could not force me into that one.

I had some matzo crackers once.....they reminded me of survival crackers.
The picture of the floating matzo reminded me of our family recipe dumplings.....which I adore (not Jewish, but european....). I don't think there's anyway to do a raw substitute for that fluffy in the middles, creamy on the outside cooked buscuity type texture.....sigh!
But we could get innovative and try?

you could make a dehydrated ball out of some nut stuff, and dehydrate it only a little, and stick it in a raw miso liquid or something.
