Simmer the meat, covered, for 2 1/2 - 3 hours, or until tender. Strain liquid from the meat into a large glass measuring cup, skim the fat from the surface. Measure 3 1/2 cups of liquid into a saucepan and heat. In a small bowl make a paste from 1/2 cup of cold water, the flour and sugar. Stir into the liquid and while stirring, bring to a boil. Add gingersnaps. Pour over the meat, simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove meat to heated platter and pour some of the gravy over it. Cut into thin slices and serve with gravy.
