  1. Heat a large pot of water to boiling.
  2. Peel potatoes, and keep submerged in cold water to prevent browning. Grate potatoes, by hand or with a food processor, into a large bowl. Drain any excess water. Stir in flour and salt. With a teaspoon, form a test dumpling. If it doesn't hold together, Stir in more flour.
  3. Form dumplings with a teaspoon, and gently drop into boiling water. Allow dumplings to float freely. Gently stir with wooden spoon so dumplings don't stick together. Reduce heat to slow boil. Boil for 40 minutes.
  4. Drain in colander. Rinse with hot water. Serve with gravy or melted butter.

This is the long lost recipe my gram used for many years, except she always added an egg. Her family moved from Hungary to Germany, then to the United States. We never really had a name for th...

Maybe my potatoes were bigger, or something, but these looked great going into the water. However fell apart and were VERY soft coming out. More flour? add an egg? Hubby and kids liked them ,...

Good, I strongly suggest using red potatoes. Red potatoes have more favor and less water.
