"Something missing in this recipe, water to boil berries in, am I correct?"
"I didn't have any problems with this recipe, but none of us liked it very much."
"Add 1 1/2 cups of water to cook the berries and steam the dumplings."
"I don't know if the recipe on here is wrong but there is nothing to boil in the first ingredients. All the sugar does is coat the blackberries and the dumplings didn't turn out either."
