Homemade Blackberry Dumplings
Since my childhood, blackberry dumplings have been a favorite delicacy, owing to my beautiful mum. I still enjoy them for dessert or when I am craving a fast, smooth and sweet dish. These delicious fruits grow naturally in the United States and were, in fact, a staple food for native Americans for quite an extended period. Early European settlers seemed to enjoy them a great deal too.
Try this delicious recipe and blow your family and friends’ taste buds. If you have a sweet tooth as I do, it will definitely make it to one of your favorites. They are readily available in grocery stores countrywide. Here is a guide on how I make mine.
