Place the shank in a large pot, cover with 7 liters (quarts) water and bring to a boil. Skim well. Lower heat and add onions, carrots, celeriac, leek, salt and peppercorns. Simmer at least 6 hours, adding more water, if necessary. Strain the stock. It should measure 5 liters (quarts).

Core the cabbages and cut into 5 mm (1/4") dice. Add to the stock and simmer until tender, about 5 minutes.

For the meatballs, remove the meat (no membrane or gristle) from the shank and grind. There should be about 250 g (9 ounces). Combine with seasonings and flour. Beat in the cream. Form into 2 1/2 cm (1") balls and simmer in stock. Reheat the meatballs in the soup and serve with lukewarm sweet white bread.
