Chicken Broth With Dumplings
- In a heavy soup kettle, bring 2 quarts cold water to a boil. Peel carrots. Put onions, celery, carrots, peppercorns, salt and bay leaves in boiling water. When it comes to a boil again, add chicken. Let simmer 2 hours. Strain through colander. Pick out carrots, cut into thin sticks and return to the broth. Cut soft parts from the giblets and, discarding all gristles, return to the broth.
- For dumplings: Sift flour and baking powder and salt. Mix 1/2 egg with milk and stir this into flour mmixture. Drop by scant teaspoons into rapidly boiling soup. Cover. These will be done in 5 or 10 minutes. Do not over cook. Serve at once.
