Default Fresh, egg noodles, how to freeze?

Hi all,

I will be making some egg noodles tonight, more than I'll need for my dish,
and need some advice.

Is it best to cook noodles and then freeze or freeze uncooked.?

Can you cook frozen raw noodles without defrosting.?

Can you re-heat frozen cooked noodles without defrosting.?

How do frozen cooked noodles taste after re-heating.?

This the recipe I'm using for the noodles:

2 cups Semolina
2 eggs
2 Tbsp water
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp corn oil

Thanks for any advice,

David.

I'd freeze the excess as strips, not noodles and freeze.

When you want some, thaw a fews strips and cut into noodles.

Dry them in bunches ("bird nests"), so there is some air, then freeze.
This way they freeze beatifully.


Can you cook frozen raw noodles without defrosting.?


yes. Just drop them in boiling water. I do it all the time.


Can you re-heat frozen cooked noodles without defrosting.?


not recommended. you'd have glue.

you don't want to find out.

I always make noodle dough after I make anything requiring egg whites
(I can't bring myself to waste those yolks!). Anyhow, when the dough
is complete I make it into fist-sized balls, flatten a bit, wrap in
plastic wrap, put the balls into a zipper-style plastic bag, and
freeze. When I am ready to make the noodles, I take a ball or two of
the dough out of the freezer, let it thaw on the counter for about an
hour, and proceed to make the noodles. It takes up a lot less freezer
space, and the noodles are fantastic!

Had you considered drying them instead of freezing them? Every January
I make about a year's worth of fine egg noodles for soup use and gifts.
I mix the dough in a food processor so it is very stiff (about like your
recipe, but I don't add any more fat than the eggs provide).
As I cut them (pasta maker) I put them on paper toweling on a wire
cooling rack and set them in front of a heat register to dry overnight.
When they're dry I bag them (Baggie-type) and store in a tin on a pantry
shelf. Works slicker'n snot.
