Snits and Knepp Recipe.
Early 1900s Camping Recipe.
Any snits un knepp fans out there? The above recipe comes from the 1910 Horace Kephart book, Camp Cookery. It is, after the fashion of so many early recipes collections, a little sparse on the details. Wikipedia comes in handy with the following description:
Schnitz un knepp, often spelled schnitz un gnepp, is a popular main dish item in the cuisine of the Pennsylvania Dutch and rural families. It is basically a dish of ham or pork shoulder with dried apples and dumplings. Apple snitz are dried slices of apples, and knepp (German for “buttons”) are rivels (dumplings).
To recap, main ingredients are: sliced rehydrated apples, a salted meat (ham), and dumplings.
