Comfort Foods

This is a recipe Tim got from his friend Linda Vaught many years ago. I have jazzed it up a bit by adding vegetables. If you want to make it the original way just omit the vegetables. This is a great recipe for the cold dreary days of winter. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Ham and Dumplings:

1 small ham with bone in

1 onion chopped

1 pound carrots cleaned and cut up

4 or 5 large potatoes peeled and cut up

1 turnip cut up

2 celery stalks with leaves washed and chopped up

2 bay leaves

1 can biscuits

enough water to cover ham in the pan

Boil the ham till falling of the bone with the bay leaves.(about 2 hours) Remove the ham from the pot. Pull apart when cooled.While waiting for the ham to cool place the vegetables in the pot. Cook till tender. Add the ham back to the pot. Bring to a boil. Open biscuits, cut the biscuits into quarters and drop into the boiling broth. Cover reduce heat to a low boil. Do not remove the lid cook for 20 minutes.

I hope ya’ll enjoy this recipe.
