"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Judit Barcza (Olivia's grandmother)


1 lb (or 2 packages) Farmer's Cheese
3 eggs (large)
3/4 c Farina
2 tbsp oil or 1/2 stick butter
1/2 tsp salt

1 c plain Bread Crumbs
2 tbsp butter
Vanilla sugar
Sour Cream (small container) or plain yogurt for less calories, also less flavor

In a medium size skillet, toast the bread crumbs in the butter to golden brown over low heat mixing often.
Put Farmer's cheese in a bowl and mash up well.
Add eggs, salt and Farina and mix together well with a wooden spoon.
Let it stand for 2-3 hours or over night, for Farina to soften.
On high heat boil water in a large pot (about 3 quarts) add a little salt.
Wet your hands with cold water and form a large spoonful of the Farmer's cheese mixture into a ball.
Place balls on a foil paper. It makes about 10 - 12 balls.
Drop the balls gently into boiling water, cook for 15 - 20 minutes, turning balls gently for both sides to be cooked. They will almost double in size.
Remove balls with a spoon and roll in bread crumbs.
On low heat, soften butter, add sour cream and 1 tbsp vanilla sugar. Let it warm up (if too thick you can add a small amount of milk).
Serve over dumplings. Sprinkle with more sugar on top.

Bon Apetit!

Set aside to cool.
