Attempting a "Maori Boilup"

While we were on holiday in Geraldine we watched a group of shearers making a "Boilup" complete with doughboys.   I always thought the sound of it was gross, but the smell and the look on the plate has changed my mind!  it was mouthwateringly goodlooking and smelling....

We have lots of pork bones, they came with the pig carcasses from the butcher when our piggies came to their timely end, and until now we have only fed them to the dog.

But today I have got two lots of bones out and am going to give it a go..I've looked at a couple of recipes, like this one http://www.food.com/recipe/maori-boil-up-with-doughboys-dumplings-484352 to get the general idea.

Pictures and recipe, and whether it was successful or not I will publish later :-)
