About Peter W. Stoner

Peter was the youngest of 3 surviving children (out of a total of 5). (They did use birth control--a vinegar-water douche) He was very ill as a young child, having the measles and whooping cough simultaneously before he was a year old, then scarlet fever and double pneumonia when he was 4. After that, he didn't grow as he should have, and was always small for his age. Because of it. He helped his mother in the kitchen, until he was large enough to work in the fields. His mother's recipe for German Egg Noodles: 1 egg, 1 Tbs water, 1 tsp. salt, and enough flour to make a stiff dough. Mix together the first 3 ingredients, stir in flour until it's stiffer than bread dough, but not so stiff as pie crust. Knead in enough flour for the correct consistency, but not too much, so as not to develop the gluten. Roll out thinly on a well-floured board. Flour the upper surface well, fold in half and roll out again, making sure that there is enough flour to keep the 2 sides from sticking. Then flour again and fold the dough over and over on itself to make a packet about 4" wide. Slice the packet crosswise every 1/4" to make the noodles, the cut once lengthwise to shorten them. Toss them into broth or soup and simmer 10 to 20 minutes, depending on thinness.
