Directions:
To prepare dumplings, sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. In a small bowl, lightly beat eggs and buttermilk together.
Pour the liquid into dry ingredients and gently fold. Mix just until the dough comes together. The batter should be thick and cake like.

In Dutch oven, combine the berries, sugar, salt, lemon extract and nutmeg. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes.

Drop six mounds of dumpling dough onto simmering berry mixture. Cover and simmer 10-12 min.
Do not lift lid during this time. Dumplings are done if toothpick comes out clean.
Spoon into individual serving dishes and top with whipped cream.
