It was fairly hot the past week here in Saskatoon and I was thinking about summer dishes that we would eat back home. First thought was a dish that involved cherries and I asked my mother for the recipe. However, I wasn’t yet settled on that one so I kept thinking and finally thought of Apricot Dumplings. My grandmother used to make them but I mostly remember them from visits to my aunt in Austria. It’s one of those dishes that I associate with a certain person and that is stuck with me forever.
