Cornmeal Dumplings

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Aroostook

These are great with stew, lamb or a simple fish chowder. (Kind of like a simmered hushpuppy)

Top Review by Noche

These are very good and just sort of sit there on your taste buds and scream; "wholesome." I added Sweet Basil. Read Mother Earth News Issue #207, "Why Whole Wheat is Better." I fresh grind all my grains. Going back a century puts you four centuries ahead.
