Three Sleeps Vineyard Bed and Breakfast

Camped on the banks of the Columbia River in Mosier, Lewis and Clark asked the Native Americans how far they were from the Big Water, the Pacific Ocean. Their answer, ‘Three Sleeps’.

Three Sleeps Vineyard B&B sits high in the hills above the Columbia River Gorge.  The vineyard is the source of Dominio IV’s Tempranillo, Syrah and Viognier grapes and is farmed organically and biodynamically.  The B&B has two spacious room, both with their own private entrance, bath and cozy seating area. Start each day with a hardy breakfast, take a vineyard tour and relax on your private patio where you can enjoy the view of the vineyard, Mosier’s world famous cherry orchards and the night quiet.

Apple Dumplings at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast

The last of the summer peaches went into a cobbler and I made a trip up to Kiyokawa Farms for fall apples and pears from the Hood River Valley Orchard.  The Apple Dumpling is a guest favorite and I look forward to making it for you in the months to come.

Apple Dumplings at the Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast

Old Parkdale Inn Apple Dumpling ~ 4 servings

For the Sauce: bring 1 cup water, 2/3 cup sugar, 2 tbsp butter, 1/4 tsp cinnamon to a boil and let simmer while you prepare the apples.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Apple stuffing:  Brown sugar, craisins, cinnamon. I make a large batch of this, maybe a couple of cups at a time, and keep leftovers in plastic zip lock bag in frig.  Prepare Puff Pastry: thaw sheet and cut into quarters

Peel and core your apples and fill with brown sugar stuffing then gently wrap puff pastry around apple.  Don’t worry if the dough doesn’t completely enclose around the apples.  Place the dumplings in a buttered pan and pour the sauce over the dumplings and around the sides of the pan. Bake for 40 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot with extra sauce drizzled over the top.
