Homemade Hot Dog Relish

Well, I think the hot dog definitely taste so much better with my homemade relish. It's fresh and not too sweet compared to relish you get at the grocers. This recipe makes about 3/4 cup of relish. Do try making your own relish next time. It's so easy to make and is all set in less than half an hour.

Recipe adapted from The Dean & Deluca Cookbook

1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar
2 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Ground White Pepper

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
