Potato Dumplings with Fruits

  1. Cook the potatoes with their skins, and once cool, peel and grate them on a fine grater. On a board knead a stiff dough from all the ingredients: flour, eggs, potatoes and salt.
  2. Roll out the dough soon so it does not get runny.
  3. Cut it into squares, put washed and drained piece of fruit into every piece and shape it as into a ball.
  4. Boil them in slightly salted  water for about 7 minutes until they float to the surface.
  5. Take them out but do not rinse them. Pour melted butter over the finished dumplings, and sprinkle topping – cream cheese with sugar, ground poppy seeds with sugar, ground nuts with sugar or fried breadcrumbs.

Method for the crumbly topping – streusel:

  1. Fry the breadcrumbs in a dry pan until pink.
  2. Sweeten the fried breadcrumbs with powdered sugar. You can also add minced or chopped walnuts to sprinkle over the still hot, buttered dumplings.

Serbian Pork Stew

Leskovac took its name long ago from its famed hazelnut woods, lešnik being the Serbian word for hazelnut. Today it is better know for its red peppers. The people of Leskovac speak a dialect of Serbian which preserves many features of the Old Church Slavonic language and even many Serbs find the local difficult to understand. Ajvar is known throughout the land and beyond as the name for a preparation of roast peppers, preserved in jars for use throughout the winter. Leskovac is also known for its fantastic barbecue meats: you’ll probably arrive in the town by car or bus, but once there you must try the Leskovac Train;(leskovački voz), an assortment of grilled meats which arrive at the table one after another like wagons. Nor should you overlook Leskovačka Mućkalica, a spicy medley of peppers and grilled meats, much prized among gourmets for its spicy flavour.

  • 400 g flour, semi-coarse
  • 4-5 pcs potatoes, boiled in their skins
