Number of Servings: 15


    ham bone (to boil for stock)
    1 large onion, quartered (for stock)
    5 lbs of potatos, shredded
    7.5 cups of flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp pepper
    1 medium onion, diced small
    1 cup ham, diced (for dumplings)
    1 cup ham, cut in strips
    3 large carrots, peeled and diced
    3 tbsp whole leaf thyme
    salt & pepper to taste


Place ham bone and quartered onion in a large stock pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, for 1 hour. Remove bone and strain liquid. Discard onion. Save any meat from the bone.

To ham stock, add thyme, and salt & pepper to taste. Add about 6 cups of water, return to boil. Keep simmering on stove while you form dumplings.

Shred potatoes and place in a collander to drain, squeezing out excess liquid. Place in a large bown and add flour, 1 cup at a time, until mixture holds together (will be very sticky). Add salt and pepper as you mix.

Form baseball-sized dumplings, adding about 1 tsp diced onion and 1 tsp diced ham to the center of the dumpling. With floured hands, form into tight balls and drop into simmering stock. Add carrots, any leftover diced ham and onion from dumplings, and strips of ham. If necessary, add more water to cover dumplings. Cook gently (don't allow soup to come to a full boil) until dumplings rise to the surface, about 20 minutes, and carrots are tender.
