Sussex, or Hard Dumplings


  • 1 pound of flour
  • 1/2 pint of water

Mix the flour and water together to a smooth paste, previously adding a small quantity of salt. Form this into small round dumplings; drop them into boiling water, and boil from 1/2 to 3/4 hour. They may be served with roast or boiled meat; in the latter case they may be cooked with the meat, but should be dropped into the water when it is quite boiling.

Time: 1/2 to 3/4 hour.

Sufficient for 10 or 12 dumplings.

Seasonable at any time.
