Gammon Dumpling

(Cheap Fish And Meat Dinners.) - (Twenty-five Cent Dinners For Families Of Six)

Make a plain paste of one pound of flour, (cost four

cents,) one dessertspoonful of salt, and one of baking powder, quarter

of a pound of finely chopped suet or scraps, (cost two cents,) and

sufficient cold water to mix it to a stiff dough; roll this out about

half an inch thick, spread over it half a pound of any cheap cut of

bacon or ham, finely chopped, (cost six cents,) roll up the dumpling as

you would a roly-poly pudding, tie it tightly in a clean cloth, and boil

it in boiling water, or boiling pot-liquor, for about three hours. Do

not let the pot stop boiling, or the dumpling will be heavy. Serve it

hot, with one quart of plain boiled potatoes, (cost three cents.) The

dinner will cost fifteen cents.
