4 to 4 1/2 pound stewing chick, cut up
3 quarts water
1 medium onion, cut into fourths
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon whole mixed pickling spice
2 cans (17 ounces each) whole kernel corn
1 1/2 cups finely chopped celery (with leaves)
2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Rivels (below)

Remove any excess fat from chicken. Heat chicken, giblets, neck, water, onion, 2 teaspoons salt and the pickling spice to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until thickest pieces of chicken are tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Strain broth. Refrigerate chicken and broth separately.

Remove chicken from bones; remove skin if desired. Cut chicken into small pieces. Remove fat from broth. Heat broth, chicken, corn (with liquid) and celery to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 10 minutes. Stir in eggs, 2 teaspoons salt and the pepper. Stir in Rivels. Cover and simmer 7 minutes. 10 to 12 servings.

Rivels

Mix 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 egg, beaten, until crumbly.
