Grandma Marita’s Cherry Soup
stock:
2 cans sour/tart cherries
1/4c sugar
1tsp butter
1 can water

dumplings:
2 eggs
1/4c water
dash of salt
1tbs sugar
flour

Combine stock ingredients and mash cherries in pan. Simmer for 5 minutes.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Add water, salt and sugar and stir. Gradually add flour until batter is stiff enough to drop by teaspoons into simmering liquid and hold together. If too thin, add more flour. When dropping, dip spoon into liquid first before dipping into batter so the dumpling will release from the spoon without sticking. Simmer for 5 minutes or until dumplings are cooked.
great with whipped cream or ice cream. yummy warm and cold! enjoy!

aka toddy coffee

how to make coldbrew coffee:
supplies: mason jar, bowl, coffee grounds, water, metal sieve, coffee filter, funnel
1/4c-1/3c course ground coffee (remember: good beans=good coffee)
1 1/2c room temperature water
put coffee and water in jar, stir with spoon until combined, put on lid, and let it sit. 3 hours minimum, but overnight for best flavor
in the morning, put sieve in bowl. open jar, pour coffee gunk through the sieve into the bowl.
discard coffee grounds (good for garden and compost!)
rinse out mason jar really well. put funnel in top of mason jar, put coffee filter in funnel. pour coffee from the bowl, through the coffee filter and into the mason jar. let it sit and filter through.
when it’s done, remove filter and funnel, cap jar and put in fridge until you are ready to use.
if you are ready, pour over ice, and add water or creamer, sip and enjoy.
want it hot? okay! add hot water. want it strong? don’t add any water! drink it straight!
