Appalachian Blackberry Dumplings (1987)

  • 3 to 4 cups, self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 quart blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cup water
To make dumplings, fill a large mixing bowl almost full with sifted flour, and make a hole in the middle. Mix in buttermilk, milk, and shortening. Knead dough, then tear off pieces.

Bring blackberries, sugar, and water to a boil. Drop dumpling dough in pieces into blackberry mixture. Cover and simmer until dough is done.
