Pomeranian Bread Dumplings
Another recipe compiled from old recipes used in Pomerania, an ancient Germany region abutting the Baltic Sea, divided between Germany and Poland after World War II. The dumplings are very unusual in that they contain a combination of bread, meat, and dried fruit, and therefore can be served as an appetizer or as a very rich accompaniment to fowl, game, or pork dishes. I like to serve them with turkey at Thanksgiving, making dried cranberries one of the ingredients.
You can use sliced dried apples, prunes, or apricots in place of the dried cranberries, if desired.
You can substitute cognac for the rum, if desired.
The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the fruit marinade ingredients. The actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.
