4 whole eggs
3/4 cup cold water
2 t. salt
flour, about 4 cups

Directions:
Directions:
Mix eggs until light. Add water and salt. Add about 4 cups flour or enough to hold dough together. On a floured surface, work 1/4 cup dough on some flour and then roll out thinly. Dry on floured cloths. (I use sheets.) When noodles start to dry on top, I cut the noodles the width I want them, about 2 inches. Next, turn the noodles. Continue to turn until noodles are dry but not brittle. Stack about 4-5 strips and cut the width you desire. If the strips stick together, they need to dry a little longer. Let dry completely, preferably overnight. Then cook in hearty chicken broth. Use about half as many noodles as broth. Don't add more noodles after they have started to cook but you can add more broth while cooking, if needed. Season to taste. Noodles will freeze well uncooked.

Personal Notes:
Drying times vary based on the humidity and the thickness of the noodle. Making noodles is an art that takes time to perfect. However, even the mistakes taste great!
