Dumpling Cooking Tips
•Make sure your soup or stew is on a gentle simmer. The liquid does not have to be boiling to achieve tender dumplings. Remember that pot temperature rises with the lid on and you don't want the contents to stick to the bottom and burn.
•Drop dumpling dough into the liquid by teaspoonfuls or for larger dumplings use a tablespoon. There's no need to worry about shaping perfect dumplings because they will puff up as they cook. Cover your pot with a lid so that the dumplings can steam.
•Check your dumplings after 10 minutes. Use a knife to cut a slit to check inside. Cook until dumplings are no longer raw in the middle.
•Do not overcook dumplings. Dumplings may disintegrate if left to cook too long.
