Gnocchi: First batch jitters Part 1

So it seems I misread the gnocchi recipe. Apparently you are supposed to cook and then freeze, instead of freezing and then cooking like I did. Maybe it doesn't really matter but when I went to cook my frozen gnocchi, it fell apart a bit in the boiling water. I think I need more flour. The flavor is spot on. Execution is a bit off, which is the hard part. I'm going to attempt it again tonight with a potato ricer and maybe even a bench knife.

I think I'll set up the camera for this one too.

  1. As far as I understand it, the water should be just barely simmering, not actually at a full boil. Maybe the lower temp. will help hold them together for ya!
