Louis Keyes' Czech Yeast-Raised Dumplings
3 Tbsp. Red Star® dry Yeast
6–7 cups flour, all-purpose
1 cup lukewarm water, approximately (a total of about 2–1/4 cups)
3-4 tsp salt
Makes 6—8 loaves
Preparation Time: 75 minutes
Notes: If you can’t find Red Star®, any active dry yeast such as Fleischmann’s® or SAF® should work fine. Texture of dough should be soft, but not sticky, and easy to work, similar to sweet bread dough. Don’t even be tempted to peek at the dumplings while they boil. A foot-long piece of flossing thread works well for slicing the dumplings.
