    Default How long does uncooked fresh egg noodle last in the fridge?

    I have kept uncooked fresh egg noodle up to a month and it was fine.
    But I am wondering whether it can be kept longer or should I freeze
    instead. The reason is that I can only get this in the other side of
    town and it''s not worth the gas expense to go there often especially
    since I don't get my vegies there anymore and get them form a farmer's
    market. Theses fresh veggies do last longer.

    So should I freeze those uncooked fresh egg noodle?

    Do your various maladies leave you able to knead dough? If you can,
    try these homemade noodles. Recipe may be halved if just for you.
    Easy (assuming you can knead) and delicious. Can't answer your
    question; never tried it.

    Homemade Egg Noodles

    2 cups all purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    1/3 cup water

    Mix the flour and salt together.

    In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, and
    water together. Form a depression in the flour mixture
    and add the egg mixture. Mix well.

    Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead for
    eight to ten minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.

    Divide the dough in half with a sharp knife. With a rolling
    pin, roll each dough piece until it is 1/16 to 1/8-inch thick.
    cover the dough with a cloth and let rest for 20 minutes to
    relax the gluten.

    Using a sharp knife, slice the dough into
    strips 3/8-inches wide. Or, roll the dough into a loose cylinder
    and then slice it. Drop the noodles one at time into
    slowly boiling soup, stew or salted water. Cook until tender (begin
    bite-testing at three minutes.) -aem

    It is usually not a good idea to buy fresh egg pasta in the first place
    and certainly not a good idea to keep it refrigerated or frozen.

    Here is what Giuliano Hazan writes in _The Classic Pasta Book_:
    <quote>
    The so-called "fresh pasta" found in refrigerator compartments of
    supermarkts and speciality shops is egg pasta at its worst. The noodles
    are usually too thick, the dough is made with semolina, which is much
    too hard a flour for egg pasta, and it is refrigerated so that it can be
    called "fresh". In fact, you should avoid cold ingredients or cold
    surfaces when making it, and the best way to store it is to let it dry
    completely whether pasta is "fresh" or not. There is no discernible
    difference between pasta used immediately after it is made, while still
    moist, and pasta that has dried completely and been stored for several
    weeks. If you must buy egg pasta, look for packaged noodles that have
    been dried and curled into nests and check the ingredients to make sure
    they are made with eggs.

    I find that misleading. None of the shops here use hard wheat flour to make
    egg pasta. Why would they? It costs 3-4 times as much as soft wheat flour!

    In every single shop I have ever seen "fresh" egg pasta here in Germany,
    it was hard wheat flour, every time. I suspect this is no different in
    American shops, which Giuliano Hazan has in mind.

    I just checked, and Victor's right, at least about the fresh pasta where I
    shop. All the more reason to make it myself!

    It is from an Asian store. I can tell the difference from the way I
    feel when I eat different types of noodle. It may not e 100% wheat
    but it does makes me feel well eating it and so I was going to use it
    routinely.
