Homemade Egg Noodles
Warning: This could be an all day affair!
How to Make Homemade Egg Noodles
- 1Beat the egg yolks and water together thoroughly.
Stir in the salt and flour to make a very stiff yet workable dough.
- 2Turn out onto a floured surface and knead more flour in until the dough is soft and elastic- not sticky. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
- 3Divide the dough into four balls.
Roll each one out making it as thin a layer as possible.
Lay each on a separate cloth to dry.
- 4when they are dry enough not to stick together, stack them on top of each other.
Using a pizza cutter, cut them lengthwise into thin strips and then cut them across the width of the dough to form thin strips. About 1 1/2 to 2 inches long.
- 5Allow noodles to dry completely before storing them in an airtight container.
- 6TO SERVE HOMEMADE NOODLES:
