On Your Own

Potato Dumplings

1 lb. peeled potatoes (3 to 4 large)
1 egg
1/2 c. flour (I use rice flour)
Pinch nutmeg
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder

Cook potatoes in salted water. Drain. Cool slightly. Finely dice potatoes into bowl. Add egg. Beat well. Add flour, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder. Mix well. Shape into one inch balls or roll one inch thick and cut into one inch squares. Drop into boiling salted water, broth, or light gravy. Cook 8 to 10 minutes and drain. 

Shaker Baked Beans

4 cups navy beans
1/2 c. butter or margarine, melted
1/2 c. molasses
1/2 c. ketchup
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. mustard
1 small onion

Wash beans and soak overnight. Simmer in soaking water until tender. Drain beans; reserve liquid. Put beans into 2 1/2 quart slow cooker. Combine with butter, molasses, ketchup, salt, mustard and onion. Stir in two cups of reserved bean liquid. Pour mixture over beans. Cover. Bake at 300 degrees F. for three hours. Add more liquid if necessary. Remove cover the last half hour. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
