Chicago-Style Hot Dog
This recipe is right on. However, my hubby ate them across from Riverview Park some 70 years ago, and he insists they have to be Vienna Hotdogs, and that the "sport peppers" didn't exist then; it was pepperoncinis. We never heard of sport peppers until this discussion.

Liver Dumplings
This is similar to a recipe I got while living in Germany in the 60's. It called for 8 white rolls soaked in 1 C milk and squeezed out, only 1/2# liver, butter to saute onion, 1 clove garlic, and parsley before mixing it together with 2 eggs. The differences seem to suggest you can be flexible about quantity of liver, bread and egg. It also says you can serve with cabbage and an onion sauce. I was checking here to see what 8 rolls would measure out to be. 2 cups of fresh crumb seems to be about half that, not sure.

Homemade Maple Syrup
We have made this for years. Real sugar thickens it better than Splenda; you can use all white sugar with fruit-flavored extracts and a little food coloring; kids love it; and if you want to experiment with thickening a sugar-free syrup, try a bit of Guar Gum, which you can buy in health food stores. I have a feeling this IS the way they do it in the stores when it's not Vermont maple syrup.
