Grandma's Homemade Noodles 2 Recipe

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour (approx.)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 whole chicken or parts (for broth)
Directions
Put flour into a large mixing bowl making a well in the center. Beat the eggs with a fork and add with the salt to the flour. With your hands mix the eggs into the flour making a ball. The dough should be rich and yellow but smooth and elastic not sticky. Fold in small amounts of flour if needed to reach the desired consistency being careful not to add too much flour, or the dough will become dry and crumbly. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto a clean flat surface. With a rolling pin roll dough into a thin flat sheet flipping occasionally and sprinkling with flour to prevent sticking. For ease of handling the dough can be divided into two or more smaller portions prior to rolling. Start at one edge of the flattened dough and roll into a loaf like a rolled cake. With a sharp knife cut the roll into thin strips. Unroll the strips and spread out on a clean dry surface, sprinkling with flour to prevent sticking. The noodles must be allowed to dry prior to cooking or you will end up with a large dumpling. I use my dining room table covered with strips of wax paper for both the rolling and drying. If you are spatially challenged the noodles can be placed in a large paper grocery bag. For best results allow to dry overnight. To prepare the broth you can boil a whole chicken or use cut up chicken parts. Cook the noodles in chicken broth by bringing the broth just to a boil and carefully dropping the noodles into the broth. Do not stir or the noodles will crumble into pieces. Cover and cook over low heat. While cooking add more broth or water to keep the noodles covered until done. Cooking time well vary depending on how thin you rolled out the dough and cut the strips. A tablespoonful in a small bowl should be tender and not gritty to the taste. You can also add more salt at this time if desired, or you can allow your guests to add salt at the table. Unlike pasta you cannot overcook noodles. Noodles can be served with or without chicken in the broth. Made from simple inexpensive ingredients this became a side dish at every family gathering.
