      Great recipe! Very easy to make. Next time I will cut the dumplings smaller. They took longer than suggested to cook and were a little chewy, rather than tender.

      see my posted comments, it's a meal in itself, this is my favorite childhood recipe that I finally rediscovered. The combined prep and cooking time is more like 3.5-4 hours depending how attentive you are to it. It's a great pot of soup to make on the woodstove and make the house smell so good. It's definitely worth the time to make! Thanks again, Di!
