    ChelseaW's Note:

    Few recipes are so locally famous, yet so little known elsewhere, as schnitz un knepp from Pennsylvania. It combines two foods, ham and apples, that are staples of Pennsylvania Dutch cooking. Schnitz means "sliced, dried apples" and knepp is "dumpling". From Heritage of America Cookbook

      This made for a very tender pork roast, which was needed since my son just had his wisdom teeth out! I was surprised how well the dried apples worked. There was good flavor through the brown sugar and apples. I also did add some salt and better. I enjoyed the dumplings very much. Yum! It was fun trying a recipe that is locally famous. :) Made for ZWT7 for the Golden Gourmets.
