    keen5's Note:

    This is my mothers recipe. I love it in the winter with corn bread. Rivels are like tiny little dumplings and add so much goodness and texture to the soup. The soup is her southern version, but the rivels were added when she moved to the PA Dutch area. Cook and prep times are apporximate, since my mom boils the ham, celery and onion, ham hock, for at least an hour on medium. This freezes very well.
