While the cow heels are being tenderize, peel the ground provisions of your choice (you can use yam, dasheen and maybe some sweet potatoes or regular potatoes) and cut up into small pieces.

Make the dough for the dumplings. To do so put the all purpose flour into a mixing bowl, add about 1/2 teaspoon of salt and mix together well. Gradually add some water and mix the flour until it forms into a dough. Cover the dough with a damp paper towel and allow the dough to rest for a few minutes

After the cow heels are nice and tender, add the pumpkin, carrot, onion, ground provisions and all the other ingredients. Add salt and all purpose seasonings. When the carrot, ground provisions and pumpkin are almost cooked, start adding the dumplings. To do so, pinch off a piece of the flour dough (that was resting for a few minutes), place between both hands and roll. These are called spinners. These are my favorite way to make my dumplings for soups. Place the flour dumplings into the pot with the cow heels and other ingredients. Continue this step until all the dough has been used up.

After about 10 minutes, turn off the stove. Serve hot and enjoy!
