can anyone tell me if when they froze matza balls if they turned darker when sitting on a dark cookie sheet?

If they were cooked fresh and frozen immediately they are still safe to eat. Let's see if readers can help with the color change; does your recipe use any potato starch, because that will definitely discolor.

Many experienced Jewish cooks freeze them before cooking, by the way.

do you have to thaw frozen matza balls, before warming in soup?

No, they do better if you heat them directly in the soup from frozen.

You can read lots of different ways to freeze them by searching google with the words-- freeze matzoh balls-- as the search topic.

Yes. They stay lighter and fluffier.

I have been freezing the matzoh ball mixture BEFORE cooking them...
Drop into soup or boiling water when ready to use. ( 35 minutes or so). So far.. NO COMPLAINTS!! LOL
