Milk Lapsha

September 6, 2017

Russians cook for crowds. If you're not feeding 100 people, you'll have to get out your calculator.)

 

3 gal. milk

1 qt. half & half

2 to 3 lb. butter

12 to 15 sugar cubes

salt to taste

1 large chashka (an approximately 3-qt. stainless steel bowl) of lapsha noodles (to be found with your nearest Russian friend, or basically egg noodles), plus optional 3 handfuls

 

In a large double boiler with lid, pour in milk, half & half, butter (adjust the amount to the richness you desire), salt, and sugar cubes.

Raise heat to high but not boiling.

Add 1 full chashka of lapsha noodles, and stir occasionally—if too thin, then add the additional noodles.

(Milk lapsha is thick and not soupy.)

Simmer for about 1 hour, until noodles are distributed evenly (not all floating on top) and soup is thickened.

Turn off heat and let sit until ready to serve.
