   2-3 hours. Add carrots and green beans and simmer

   minutes more. Noodles can be used in place of spatzle.
   SPATZLE: Beat eggs slightly. Combine flour, salt, and
   nutmeg. Beat eggs into flour mixture. Gradually add
   1/2 c. milk, then add more milk a tablespoon at a time
   until the mixture is smooth, soft, and quite moist.
   Pour some of the batter into a colander and press it
   through the holes with a spatula into boiling salted
   water. Cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring
   occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon and add to
   soup.
