Friday’s Fare: Ham with Dumplings

Today’s recipe is taken from my upcoming book Plain & Simple Traditions: Amish & Mennonite Holidays. It is available for pre-order and will be released in December! The book contains stories, hymns, decorating tips, and (of course) recipes so that readers can also delight in having a plain and simple holiday, just like the Amish and Mennonites.

Ham with Dumplings

Ingredients:

8 cups water

1 (2 ½ pounds) ham, cubed and fully-cooked

2 packages dried apples (12 ounces)

1/4 cup chopped green or regular onions

1/2 cup chopped celery

1 tsp. fresh parsley

1 tsp. fresh chives

Salt

Pepper

3 cups biscuit baking mix

1 cup milk

Directions:

In a large soup pot, combine the water, ham, dried apples, celery, onions and herbs. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer while preparing the dumplings.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the baking mix and milk just until moistened.

Uncover the soup pot and carefully drop the batter by heaping tablespoonfuls into the soup pot, making dumplings (8-12 depending on the preferred).

Simmer uncovered, for 10 minutes. Cover and simmer until the dumplings are doubled.
