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.

Roast Goose

Autumn in Slovakia belongs to goose feasts, with their long tradition especially in the Small-Carpathian region. Breeding of geese and goose feasts in Slovakia have about a hundred year long tradition that is related to the southern regions of our country. The tradition of roasting goose came to Slovakia from German-speaking countries, especially Austria and Germany, where it is associated with the feast of St. Martin. In Slovakia, it was mainly established for economic reasons because selling roasted goose at the local markets was the activity of Slovak housewives, which in this way improved the household budget. Gourmets from various parts of the country began to search for places where the best goose came from (Chorvátsky and Slovenský Grob). Another reason for the emergence of this habit was just to the South of Slovakia with plenty of small rivers and brooks ideal conditions for breeding geese.
