Strawberry Dumplings

, , , ,

How nice the strawberry season is! We love the little red fruits! The strawberry fields are full and just waiting to be picked and nibbled.

In Austria, we like to have sweet food for lunch, such as apricot dumplings, potato fingers or apfelschlangerl. The list could go on forever. 🙂
Today we have strawberry dumplings.
Main course or dessert, they are wonderful.

They just taste so delicious! Can’t stop eating!

The dough is simple and fast to do. (No need for it to rest.) Then the strawberries are placed in the middle of the dumplings. Placed in boiling hot water, before being rolled in delicious cinnamon crumbs. Ready to eat!! Give it a try!

Wild garlic potato fingers

, , ,

The wild garlic season is coming to an end. Since the season is short we try to make the best out of it. Wild garlic paste is the best way to conserve and use through out the year.

Here is a German and Austrian speciality with wild garlic. The famous “Schupfnudeln” – wild garlic potato (dumpling) fingers.
What a great colour and taste!

Austrian Potato Fingers

Today we have a typical Austrian “Erdäpfelnudeln”. There is no englisch name known to me for this snack. That’s why I call them Austrian Potato Fingers. It used to be our midday fast food and since we were allowed to eat with our fingers it tasted 10 times so good. 🙂
