It can't get any better than this! We made these noodles with our aunt in Poland and not only are they worth the time, but they also give your arms a workout that Richard Simmons would be proud of! (neon workout arm and headbands not included :)

Before I have made noodles on my own but they never came out really .... right. The trick is, as I have learned, to roll and roll and roll that rolling pin until the dough is hard. Also, keeping the dough dry is essential. Practice makes perfect, and I'll be sure to use all my aunt's and grandma's advice for my future noodle-making.

These amounts are enough to make noodles for about 4-5 bowls.

How to Make Polish Kluski - Fresh Homemade Noodles

Step-by-Step

  1. In a big mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients with your hands.
  2. Mix until hard (yet pliable) dough forms. If gets really wet, add little bits of flour to keep it workable. (10-15 minutes). Dough will not be very smooth at this point.... work it out until it is smooth.
  3. Separate dough into two round balls. Turn out onto floured surface and let them rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Working with one of the dough balls, roll it out on a floured surface (don't forget to flour your rolling pin). Roll it until thin but firm enough for you to pick up the whole sheet (roll for about 15 minutes until about 1/8 in. thick).
  5. Set first sheet aside and roll out the second dough ball.
  6. Set the sheets somewhere so they can "dry". You don't need to hang them like you sometimes see in pictures or movies. You can leave one on the rolling board and one on the table or clean countertop... Let them rest and dry for about 15 minutes.
  7. Time to cut the noodles! Cut dough into strips about 3-4 in. wide. Then, stack those strips, and working from the shorter end, and using a SHARP knife, cut your noodles into small strips.
  8. Put cut noodles into lightly-floured bowl. Get your water boiling. When ready, boil noodles until they rise to the top. (This will be quicker than when you boil the packaged noodles from a box).
  9. Enjoy fresh noodles with anything... here we gobbled them up with a tiny bit of butter, tiny bit of sugar, fresh crumbled farm cheese and berry jam...
  10. ... and with orange marmalade...!
