Noodles for Soup
1/2 tsp salt
flour (about 1 cup)
1 - Beat the eggs, add the salt, and as much flour as can be worked into the eggs.
2 - Knead well, cover and let stand 30 minutes.
3 - Roll out thin and spread on cloth to dry.
4 - Cut in narrow strips.
A very simple recipe. You might ask why anyone would bother
to make their own noodles? My grandmother made her own noodles
because she had the time, but I'm sure also because it was
cheaper than pre-packaged, but also the noodles probably tasted
better. She also knew exactly what was in them. If you buy any
food that has been processed (in a large factory probably), you
may have doubts about the "added ingredients", some of which are
on the label and some of which may not be listed. Having worked in
a grain mill to make college money, I saw a bug killer called
ethylene dibromide being added to the raw wheat. I also saw
workers sweating over a conveyor belt carrying flour to the
packaging area. Hope I didn't spoil your appetite, but I remember
telling my mother NEVER to buy any of the bread made with the flour
from this (not to be named here) factory. My point is this: maybe
it is worth the extra effort required to make a product yourself
hoping that the raw materials you use are pure. - Frank
