Wendish Noodles

Driving through Hill Country last spring, I heard tell of Wendish noodles, and was intrigued enough to order some by overnight from Weikel's in La Grange (along with a hefty portion of kolaches). I have got the noodles and am not quite sure how they are typically served in the area. Anyone have any insight on how these noodles are typically prepared or served? Thanks to all.

    I found this:


    It's not clear if the parsley, green onion and nutmeg are added to the broth or as garnishes.

    Btw, thanks for posting this. I had heard of the Wends years ago but forgot. I want to get up and visit the town.

      Thanks, Bruce. If you are in the area, Weikel's bakery in La Grange was insanely delicious. I still crave those poppy kolaches.

        Ah yes, been to Weikel's many times and if it's possible to OD on poppy seed kolaches, I've come very close.
