Tales from the cup
Grits dumplings with plumps
Cook the grits in milk with the addition of salt and sugar as instructed on the packaging. Cover the milk with adhesive foil to prevent the crust from forming and allow it to cool. When the grits cools down, add the egg and gradually add the flour. It may not need all the flour. Form the mixture into a roller and cut into eight pieces. Lay out each piece in the palm of your hand, then put on half a plum and a little cinnamon and hang up the other half. Wrap the dough around it and form it into a ball. Boil the balls in boiling salty water for 10 minutes or until they emerge to the surface. Melt butter in a pan, add bread crumbs, cinnamon and brown sugar and fry everything briefly to make the crumbs glaze. Roll the boiled balls into crumbs. Bon appetite!1 hour

Did you know?
Chicory is a perennial plant from the dandelion family that is naturally distributed throughout Europe. While its leaves are used in the preparation of salads and its characteristic blue flowers are used to decorate dishes, its root is also used as an ingredient in the production of coffee substitute. During the autumn harvest, the root is carefully collected, cleaned and chopped to allow for uniform roasting. The roasted pieces are then ground to a fine grain that allows for the preparation of this classic beverage. In addition to the classic coffee substitute, Franck Cikorija, for those wanting a faster preparation of the beverage, there is also the Bianka 100% Cikorija, an instant coffee substitute that is made entirely from this noble plant.
