This is a \"granny recipe\". Real nostalgia. I donīt even like dumplings, usually. But it is a must in this treat. I had to learn how to make it cause granny is gone now and where else can I get it?
300 g fresh or bottled blueberries
2-3 tbsp sugar depending on your taste
2 tsp potato flour
half a cup of water
1 egg [+ 1 yolk]
2 tbsp butter
2 -3 dl flour
2,5 dl milk
Make the dumpling dough first. Once the berries rise to boil, you will be a wee bit too busy.soften the butter on room temperature. crack an egg into a bowl and mix with butter. if you want more dumplings and double the other ingredients, donīt add a whole egg just the yolk or the dumplings turn out too heavy. No need to beat the egg (it hasnīt wronged you?). Then add a bit of flour and a bit of milk one spoonful at a time stirring until they disappear into the dough, do that with all of the milk but you can leave some flour out if you see the dough getting sticky and thick. season with salt.
place the berries ina non-stick cooker and add some water so they wonīt burn. bring to boil, boil not more than 10 minutes.
take little spoonfuls of dough and drop into the boiling soup. give them 3-4 minutes.
dissolve a bit of potato flour in water and drizzle into the soup while stirring constantly.
Serve the soup with a glass of cold milk. If you are a sweet-tooth, you can add sweet condensed milk on your plate
