Directions:
Fill a large pot with water and turn on high. Peel and wash the potatoes. Quarter the large ones to fit in the grinder. Grind and measure potatoes into a large bowl. Set aside 1/4 c. of the flour. Mix the remaining dry ingredients together and gradually add to the potatoes. Combine until it feels like paste. You will need someone to help you scrape your hands off, it's very sticky. Start forming dumplings the size of a lemon or medium orange. The larger the dumpling, the longer the cooking time. Use a long-handled cooking spoon or ladle to drop the dumplings in the boiling water, one at a time. Bring water back to a simmer, gently unstick the dumplings from the bottom of the pot. Gently simmer for about one hour. Dumplings should be floating at this time.
