  -> Thanks. You don't have to spell them correctly to be able to eat them, and the dictionary doesn't give the plural. But I love all kinds of soup, and my Swedish sister in law is a dab hand at making klimpar!

agree  Roald Toskedal: Sounds delicious! ;)

  -> Absolutely! I think I will have to make soup & dumplings this weekend (But it will be our family's Danglish way of using the vegetables in the garden just now, with English-inspired cheese dumplings or mini-scones)
