Spatzle won't release....
Making homemade spatzle for the first time. Of course it is not going well. I followed the attached recipe. I tried using a metal colandar and a plastic slotted spoon. In both cases the spatzle will not release. It just oozes through the holes/slots. I added more water to the dough as it says it should be a little runny and definitely is not runny. I followed the recipe exactly other than the extra water.
Frustrated I put the dough in the refrigerator for now.
Any ideas? I did try putting some olive oil on the colander and the spoon. It made no difference.
