For lunch today I had home made duck soup with dumplings..a miracle..dumplings. For years..decades.actually.I have tried to make dumplings so many times with so many different techniques and so many different recipes and always the same result..a gooey mess that sucks up all the broth. My mother let me try so many times, directly in her broth, and always the same..
Today as I considered risking the broth in this amazing soup to try one more time, the cosmos..or maybe my mother from the Great Beyond.... suddenly whispered in my ear.."What about that nice bamboo steamer dear..you know..on top of the soup..above .it" And there it was ..two tiers of unbelieavbly fluffy and perfect dumplings nesting in the bamboo steamer.
A moment of perfect abundance. January 24, 2011
