Aunt Sadie's Blackberry or Dewberry Dumplings
My Aunt Sadie also grew them, and one time showed me how to make her Dewberry Dumplings.
Here is the way I remember it. Adjust the sugar depending on the sweetness of the berries. The key here is the very slow simmer.
Serve with cream poured over, or vanilla ice cream.

How to Make Aunt Sadie's Blackberry or Dewberry Dumplings
- Place remaining berries and the sugar in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add 3-4 tablespoons water. Heat over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil, then turn very low so you have a slow simmer. Stir often during this process. You may add up to ½ cup water or so, until you have a nice syrup consistency.
