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 dumplingsApple 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.
