REAL Gnocchi

Postby zensho » Mon May 07, 2007 8:26 am

Gnocchi IS NOT potatoe and flour, it is potatoe, EGG and flour (with, if you want, a pinch of nutmeg).

Boil potatoes in Jacket
Add equal volume of flour and an egg (plus PINCH of nutmeg) and some salt
Mix up into a dough
Knead for at least 10 minutes

Role out into snakes. Cut into small pieces. PINCH each piece so it is thinner in the middle compared to edges.

Leave for at least one hour at RT.

Boil until they float (a few minutes or even less).

Serve with your favourite sauce.

Anyone remember the Gnocchi heresy?

We had to burn a lot of believers at the stake over that one. (Okay, we served them burnt steak but it was still unpleasant).
