RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

MAIN COURSE

ZWETSCHGENKNOEODEL (Plum Dumplings), German

Ingredients
  • 3 medium potatoes, boiled and cooled
  • 12 small blue plums, pitted
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 12 small cubes sugar
  • ½ cup potato flour
  • ¼ pound butter, melted
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 3 tbsp, bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
Preparation Instructions

Peel potatoes and put through ricer or sieve, or mash them until very smooth. Add the flour, salt and egg, and potato flour. Mix to make smooth dough. Place on a lightly floured board and shape the dough into a long roll, about the shape of a rolling pin. Cut into 12 pieces, as evenly as possible.

Place a cube of sugar in the center of each plum. Press each plum into a piece of dough, making sure the plum is completely covered.

Cook in rapidly boiling salted water for 10 minutes. Drain well. Pour melted butter over the dumplings and sprinkle with bread crumbs which were browned slightly in some butter.

This recipe provides for 12 dumplings, or 2 per person.
