My Mama's TOMATO DUMPLINGS

This is really good if you like tomatoes. My Dear mama loved these. She taught me to make them. Every time I go to the grocery store and I see these tomatoes I think of her. She also taught me to make Sweet Potato Dumplings. I have heard of Irish potato dumplings but I've never tried those. My Mama and I could make a meal off of these. My husband didn't care for them, so alot of days I would make them for lunch when he was at work.

(15 ounce), hunts diced tomatoes

1 c

2 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put the can of Diced tomatoes in a medium to large saucepan.You want one big enough to let the dumplings have room to rise up.
2
Add the margarine, sugar, salt, & pepper. Bring to a boil, lower the temp to a simmer while you make the dough.
3
Combine flour & crisco, cut in the shortening with a fork or pastry blender, until lumps are the size pf peas.
4
Mix in just enough milk until dough leaves sides of the bowl.( I start out with the 2/3 cup and then adjust the amount of milk, as needed).)
5
Then turn the heat back up on the tomatoes, just enough to start a low boil.
6
I just drop the dough in with a tablespoon. ( I don't roll it out.) Put lid on and cover the dumplings. Keep a eye on them, and you can tell by looking when they have risen and are done. DO NOT STIR IT UP.
7
You can adjust the margarine,sugar, salt, & pepper to you taste.
