    My mother also made noodles. I passed them on to my daughter. However, I add the noodles to a chicken broth with pieces of chicken, with onion, carrot, celery and garlic. Than before eating add butter.

    Hi, Hypatia...I think drying them allows more of the liquid that you will be cooking them in (i.e., chicken broth) to be absorbed than when you use them right after making them, but either way they are still very good. Happy Holidays, ya'll!

    My husband's favorite is homemade noodles with chicken. I've been talking about noodle recipes with friends and one says she doesn't dry her noodles at all, where my mother used to hang them over the backs of chairs and set the chairs over the furnace ducts. I asked my sister and she says we dry our nooldes because Mother did! Could saomeone please comment on the advantages/reasons for drying/not drying noodles

    Thanks for the tip about rolling up the noodle dough, then cutting them...I think that would make the process a lot quicker, especially if you are making them to cook right away. I am also going to try them without the water, as I think the egg flavor is what is so special about these noodles. When I have the time, I make these for my family and we all agree, there is nothing but nothing like fresh pasta!

    " It was excellent "

    I always loved to watch and help my grandmother making her noodles. She would pile a few cups of flour in the middle of the kitchen table, make a well and add the eggs to the center. She mixed them by hand, then rolled them out, cut, tossed them in flour and left them to dry in the flour that was left on the table.
    Those were the days!!!
