Apples and Buttons
(Schnitz un Knepp)

3 lb ham
1 qt apple, dried
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 cup flour
1 milk
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1 egg, well beaten
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp salt

Pick over and wash dried apples. Cover with water and let soak over
night or for a number of hours. In the morning, cover ham with cold
water and let boil for 3 hours. Add the apples and water in which
they have been soaked and continue to boil for another hour. Add
brown sugar. Make dumplings by sifting together the flour, salt,
pepper and baking powder. Stir in the beaten egg, milk (enough to
make fairly moist, stiff batter), and melted butter. Drop the batter
by spoonfuls into the hot liquid with the ham and apples. Cover
kettle tight and cook dumplings for 15 minutes. Serve piping hot
on large platter.

Notes: I think the recipes in this cookbook all assume using a
whole, uncooked ham. I would omit the step of boiling ham for 3
hours if using a cooked ham.
