Hello Dear Reader,
I was asked how to make dumplings so here’s how. I buy suet and follow the instructions on the side. Half suet to flour and then enough water to make it into a stiff dough. Use Self Raising flour.
I buy mine job lot from Tescos or somewhere equally cheap and usually buy the value flour.
Make a stew in a pot, or a casserole and make sure the lid is on, with enough room for the dumpling to double or treble in size. They steam! Keep the lid on whilst cooking, either on top of the stove or in the oven.
To begin with, mine were nothing special. I now have happy chewing silence from anyone who eats them. I’ve recently bought a mahoosive order from Approved Food and I always buy their Suet mix, which is £1!!! I have two of these stashed away and they will keep for years. Just follow the instructions on the side of the packet.
It can be used for dumplings, jam roly poly or suet pastry for steak and kidney pudding. Here’s one of the resulting dinners with dumplings.
Any one else had a recent order from Approved Foods? Any one make the most of their offer of tins of tuna for 20p? I bought 30 tins as that was the most any one person could order.
