I just read that in order for matzah to be kosher for passover, everything must be done (mixed & baked) within 18 minutes from the time you combine the flour & water together. I know matzah was a bread of haste, but I'm not sure where the oddly specific 18 minutes comes from. I read it as an editors note on another site with matzah recipes. Does anyone know about this? What, did they have stop watches in the desert?
