DIRECTIONS

  • Brown finely chopped onion in bacon grease.
  • Add to ground pork along with celery, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves.
  • Shape into balls about 1-1/2 inches in diameter.
  • Roll in seasoned flour (flour, salt, and pepper combined).
  • Drop meatballs into boiling beef broth.
  • Reduce temperature; simmer for 1 hour.
  • Thicken remaining stock with browned flour; season to taste.
  • NOTES FOR THE COOK:
  • You may make beef stock or use boullion cubes and water.
  • Browned flour is something our Mothers and Grandmothers made. It is very simple to make by just stirring several tablespoons of flour back and forth in a dry medium hot skillet. This type of flour will not thicken as quickly as plain flour because the heat breaks down the starch cells. It takes 3 tablespoons of browned flour to do the work of 1-1/2 tablespoons of plain flour. 'Flour may be browned in a hot oven' is what recipe says; I don't know about that; I think it could burn pretty easy.
