Kimmel Soup (P, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 4

2 tbsp. caraway seed
1-1/4 tbsp. margarine
2 tbsp. flour divided
4 cups water divided
1/4 teaspoon paprika (I use Hungarian)
2 tbsp. chopped parsley
Up to 2 tsp. salt, divided
1 egg

Cut a small square of cheesecloth and tie the caraway seed in securely (I would suggest doubling the cheesecloth thickness). Set aside.

In a 2-quart pot, melt margarine and stir in 1 tablespoon of the flour. Cook until light brown. Gradually stir in 1 cup of water and the paprika, stirring constantly so the mixture does not lump. Add the remaining 3 cups of water. Add the caraway seeds, parsley and 1 tsp. salt. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

In a small bowl stir together the remaining tablespoon of flour, the remaining salt and the egg. Drop by teaspoonfuls into the soup . Cook ten minutes longer.

Discard the bag of caraway seeds and serve. There is no need to add rice as this soup makes its own little dumplings.
