Ham Dumplings
(Kroppkakor)
This is a dish typical of Swedish farmhouse cookery - very rich and satisfying in cold weather.

What You Need:
  • 3 pound potatoes
  • 4 oz flour
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ pound smoked raw ham
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 onions

  • How To Cook:
    1. Boil the potatoes in their skins, then peel and sieve them, or mash thoroughly.

    2. Beat in the egg, add salt and pepper, and then add sufficient flour to make a mixture which is easily handled, blending it in well.

    3. Roll out this potato paste to ½ inch in thickness and cut into rounds with a floured pastry cutter.

    4. Cut up the ham into very small pieces and chop the onion; put the ham and onion into a small frying pan and fry them slowly, turning with a metal spoon.

    5. Put a spoonful of the ham and onion mixture on to half of the potato rounds, cover with the remaining rounds, and pinch the edges together.

    6. Drop the dumplings so formed into a pan of boiling salted water and let them simmer slowly for 10 minutes.

    7. Pile on a hot dish, and serve with a lavish amount of melted butter, which should be handed in a sauce-boat.

    NOTE:
        In Sweden whortleberry jam is also served as an accompaniment to this dish.
     
    To Serve: 2 - 4
