What You Need:
3 lbs. ham, cooked
1 t salt
4 C dried tart apples
3 T of brown sugar
1 onion, chopped fine
2 C of flour
4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper

How to Make It:
Lay the ham into the bottom of a large cooking pot.
Sprinkle the salt over the ham then cover completely with water.
Place the cooking pot over high heat and bring the water to a steady boil.
Place the apples into a large mixing bowl.
Cover completely with water and allow the apples to soak for 2 hours.
After 2 hours add the apples and the water they soaked in to the pot with the ham.
Sprinkle the brown sugar into the water.
Add the onions and up the heat to high.
Bring the mixture back to a rapid boil.
Reduce the heat again to low, cover and allow the mixture to simmer 1 1/2 hours.
Sift the flour into a large bowl.
Sift in the baking powder, salt and pepper.
Add in the egg and butter.
Slowly add in the milk but only enough of the milk to moisten the dry ingredients with, being sure to continuously stir as you add it in, and the batter should be stiff.
Uncover the cooking pot and turn the heat to medium.
Allow the mixture to come to a brisk steady boil.
Drop the batter by spoonfuls into the boiling liquid.
When all the batter has been added, cover the pot and cook 15 minutes.
