 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          flour
    4      teaspoons     baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    1      tablespoon    plus 1/4 cup sugar
      1/3  cup           butter
      3/4  cup           milk
    4      cups          grape juice (from wild grapes if possible)
    4      cups          wild grapes,  (concord will substitute) -- 
 seeded
 
 Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and 1 tablespoon of the 
 sugar. With a pastry blender, work in the butter. Stir in the milk to 
 make a dough. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board and cut 
 into 2 inch squares. Heat the grape juice, grapes and remaining sugar 
 in a heavy kettle until boiling. Drop in the dumplings. Cover closely 
 and steam 15 to 20 minutes or until tender. Serve hot.

 NOTES : My sister, Melba, lives along a creek in Oklahoma and has 
 wild grapes. We use to go over and pick them and can or freeze the 
 juice, so on. But....I have gotten lazy and haven't done that in 3 or 
 so years. So I make this with concord, not the same flavor but still 
 very tasty.
