So how did my gluten free suet come about I hear you ask? I’d put off making dumplings for two reasons, a) I didn’t know how to substitute suet and b) I didn’t think Bethany would like them anyway. In reality a) gluten free suet is so simple to recreate and b) Bethany loves them! Now that I’ve made my own gluten free suet I know we can have ‘proper’ beef stew over the winter for sure. You can find the recipe here Homemade Gluten Free Suet Recipe

Gluten Free Dumplings
- 125 g gluten free plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 60 g gluten free vegetable suet
- 100 ml water
- handful of chopped parsley optional
- Add your homemade suet, plain flour, baking powder and chopped parsley to a bowl, begin to add the water a table spoon at a time and using a fork stir the mixture slowly bringing the ingredients together.
- Continue to add the water (you may not need the full 100ml) until you have a manageable dough with which you can roll into 8 balls.
- If not adding to a stew immediately place on a plate and cover with a damp cloth, tea towel or kitchen roll to prevent drying out and cracking.
- Add the dumplings to the last 25 minutes of cooking your stew. If you’d rather you can brown them off by removing the casserole lid for the last 5-10 minutes but this may dry out your dumplings

For full transparency, in 2020 I made my first £25, and in 2022 I reached my next £25 (Amazon don’t transfer the money until you reach £25). Recently I got paid a whopping £27.10 for 2023.
So to date I have made £78.58 since I first started the scheme in 2017. It won’t pay the bills, that’s for sure but it does help to pay for ingredients or little treats to cheer me up!
