  • For bone marrow dumplings, combine ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Using two teaspoons, shape mixture into dumplings, dipping spoons in hot water between each dumpling to clean, and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Makes about 18 dumplings. Bring a saucepan of salted water to a simmer over medium heat, add dumplings a few at a time and simmer gently for 4-5 minutes or until they float, then remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Repeat with remaining dumplings.
