  • Is it safe to keep dried out egg noodles? Crazy Eddie

    I've read a few sites explaining how to dry your noodles, and I know the store bought ones are not made with eggs. I tried experimenting with no-egg noodles though and they just came out too gummy. I've not seen any site explicitly saying it's ok to dry egg noodles. Raw egg is kind of a scary thing; I know they do end up cooked eventually, but in the meantime can they get all nasty so they make you sick and/or taste like ash?

  • My italian grandma does it, but says to really make sure they dry out.

    You can dry them out and then freeze them, if it makes you feel any less hesitant.

  • I have to say. Yes, it's safe as both Chinese and Italian have been doing that for many years.

    The only thing I would say is How are you going to dry your noodles? Usually drying noodles require some device(s) or natural sunlight.

    In my opinion, I will make sure the noodles are still fresh and I will dry noodles under the sun. I may leave it under the sun for a longer time which I will make sure all of the moisture in the noodles go away, otherwise, it can go off easily.

  • I tried making Udon noodles several times and even though I've gotten a rhythm to do them, I still can't figure out why they break so easy when I blanch them. I use 1tsp lye water 8 ounces (1 cup) warm water 2 1/2 cups unbleached bread flour 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour I blanch them for about 7 minutes and roll it until 1/16 of a inch thick. When eating them with chopsticks they don't even make it that far because they break. It might be the weight on them but they break. How can I improve my udon noodles so that they don't break?

  • Whenever I've cooked quiche, it's been in a round tin of around 10-12 cm diameter. I've used 5-6 eggs along with other ingredients like chicken and vegetables. After it comes out of the oven, I find that the height is low (around 2cm) when I thought/expected it to be higher. I find it hard to know when it's actually 'cooked' as the egg parts are runny when it's in the oven, only solidifying when I take it out. How can I tell that the quiche is done?

  • I've never made noodle dough before, and I want to try it today. However, I'd like to make the noodles more sweet. Is the base ingredient ratio for making the noodle dough one egg per 100g flour? How can I make it sweeter? Would I just add sugar or is there a better ingredient to add that will not change the texture of the noodles? Will adding butter and milk change the texture of the noodle?

  • A few days ago i started reading about popsicles recipes. Searching this out i found out about two sort of recipes using almost identical ingredients to make a creamy popsicle.
