    Definitely a comfort food when you don’t feel good or even when you do feel good!

    I have found that if you ad a pinch of nutmeg and some white pepper to the dumpling mix it has a deeper flavor than just using salt.

    I’ll try to make the griesnockerlsuppe once I learn how to make (or buy ) a proper broth. My mother made this, but as usual, no receipes written down.
    I’m looking for a receipe for saure lungerl. I would most likely use chicken instead of calfs lungs. Healthier and its also tough to find the lungs, if they are even out there. I need a receipe for the tasty tangy broth. Can you help
    Like your site. Thanks for your help.
