Go out and pick some dandelion leaves. It does not matter if you pick them early before they turn bitter. Your noodles are going to taste really nice.
Wash them, and dry them on a towel or give them a whirl in your salad spinner.
Remove the tender leaf parts from the rib in the middle. Discard the ribs.
Here is what I used:
1 1/4 cups dandelion greens, packed down
1/4 cup water
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon Realsalt
"Goldenwhite" flour ~ it is organic and has the germ and about 10% of the bran left in it
Place the greens and water in a small saucepan, put on the lid and steam the greens until they are tender.
Allow to cool, then put the greens, eggs, and salt in a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour into a bowl and start adding flour, a little at a time until it is stiff enough to knead. Knead on a floured surface for about 3 minutes.
Divide into two pieces and roll each one out on a floured surface, very thinly, and then cut into noodles with a pizza cutter.
Drop into boiling water and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and serve with plenty of butter and salt.
