Recipes By Janet Cranness
The name “Sinkers and Swimmers” was used to describe
whether the dumplings had risen (as they should), to the top of the water or stew, or sunk to the bottom. A good “Swimmer” is light and filling at the same time.
This recipe was often used in my family to feed farm workers who were often hungry. The dumplings were cheap to make and made a stew more filling.
