My Grandma June taught us to make German noodles by hand for Thanksgiving. The recipe calls for measurements that are, shall we say, non-standard. Who needs a a set of teaspoons when you can use a cracked egg shell? Needless to say, you can't just hand someone a copy of the recipe and expect them to turn out. It is more about how the dough feels than anything else so - it must be taught.
Last year Abigail assisted me in noodle prep. This year I was more of a consultant. Thanks for all the yumminess Abby! You did a great job. Grandma June would be proud.
