Just wondering is anyone is making
Cook your noodles, drain them, and let them cool.
I make a noodle like dumplin fro chicken soup
No drying rack; I just let them rest on the counter where I rolled and cut them, for about 20 or 30 minutes, then cook them fresh.
I love those pasta cutters, I've seen them on a scissor mechanism that lets you make the blades closer together or further apart.
Probably you could have cooked the turnips first and smooshed them into the liquid to thicken....I have only ever made home made noodles for my CN soup...And with that if I cut them I usually flour them so they don't stick then I scoop up the noodles with some of the flour and that thickens it.
I have a past machine that I used to make noodles in the winter. We had a wooden clothes dryer that I would sit on the counter because the furnace vent was above we don't have floor vents and it would blow down on the noodles and dry them in hafl the time I always hung them on towels too that helped speed things along....I would have noodles all over the house and think I would make enough for the winter but for some reason when we were having soup people would show up and they didn't last long.....lol
