Liver Dumplings


  • 1 calf's liver
  • 1/2 pound of beef suet
  • 1/2 pound of flour
  • 2 minced onions
  • 1 handful of bread-crumbs
  • 1 table-spoonful of chopped parsley and sweet marjoram mixed
  • a few blades of mace
  • a few cloves powdered
  • pepper
  • salt
  • 6 eggs


Take calf's liver, and chop it very fine. Mix with it the beef suet chopped fine also; half the flour, onions, bread-crumbs, parsley and sweet marjoram, mace, cloves, and a little pepper and salt. Mix all well together. Wet the mixture with the eggs well beaten, and make it up into dumplings, with your hands well floured. Have ready a large pot of boiling water. Drop the dumplings into it with a ladle, and let them boil an hour. Have ready bread-crumbs browned in butter to pour over them before they go to table.
