Mary Hill Dumplings


I have no idea if Mary Hill is a real person and I'm not trying to advertise for the company but I just discovered that this company is located in Hazelhurst, Georgia. I don't know many people who can make real dumplings now days and some of the best cooks I know use these. Around here they are available in the frozen food section at Wal Mart. They are really good and I'm sure I'll be enjoying some of these wonderful dumplings for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I appreciate all of you who are stopping by to view my blog and leave comments. I have moved and I'm not able to post photos at present.

This is good, and I will be looking for these. My family loves dumplings, and my grandmother had them often, home made of course.
Have a great day Dot.

I've always made my own. I had no idea you could buy them. I don't think we can buy them here.

The motto is good, but in a strange place!I'm not sure that people who use drugs will use dumplings and read the message!.
Glad to see back to your blog, I was missing you!!

Never heard of these. I'll have to give them a try. I do make real dumplings on stew in the winter. We love them. Good comfort food that sticks to the ribs.

Love her motto! My grandmother used to make her own dumplings, but that was a long time ago.

I'm not a big fan of dumplings. No one in my family ever made them.
Nice to see you posting Dot.
I miss all your beautiful photos!

Oh!! I love chicken/dumplings! I have never tried to make them but we have some folks in Alabama who sure know how! :) A niece usually makes a big pot for our family reunion each year.

I usually buy Sweet Sue- which is very good! (canned) They had a plant in Athens, Alabama where they were made...but I think that place closed down! :( I'll look for yours that you've told us about here!


Happy Thanksgiving!!

I have never heard of this brand. The next time I'm at Walmart, I'll check to see if it's in my area. How did it taste? Happy Thanksgiving!

I don't know about Mary Hill dumplings, I've never tried them (but I might) but I know my Grandmothers made the best homemade dumplings - OMG - what I would do to have a big pot of their chicken and dumplings!

Cindy said...

Hi Dot. I like the saying on the front. Next time I'm in Walmart I'll see if they have them. I bet they're pretty good.

Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

My Mom made dumplings and we often had chicken and dumplings.

D said...

I've had those, they're good!
Not exactly health food, but tasty nonetheless. I remember my grandmother making homemade dumplings. Pretty sure she used lard.

Craver Vii said...

That would probably not sell very well around here. Maryhill is the name of a cemetery.

Funny place for that motto. I wonder if there is a back story.

Cindy said...

Hi Dot, I just wanted to wish you a wonderful and Happy Holiday season.

Deborah Wilson said...

PERBS said...

Hi! A friend sent me by your blog. I actually live in Hazlehurst, GA. Mary Hill is very real and is still alive today. She was encouraged to sell her homemade dumplings and that's when she started up. The company is actually located VERY close to my work and is a small building.

I use these dumplings and love them!

TheHill said...

I am the son of Mary Hill. She is real and is alive and well. She does not own the company now but did start it and owned it for a number of years. The dumplings are delicious if you follow her directions on cooking them. Enjoy!!

dot said...

Just in case you ever look again (TheHill)...thanks for your comment. I hope some day to be able to go and visit the shop. Everyone in my family loves your mother's dumplings and we consider them necessary at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hope your mother got rich off her delicious dumplings!

To The Hill: We used to live in Hazlehurst, and have enjoyed Mary Hill Dumplings for years. We had heard that Cracker Barrel used Mary Hill Dumplings. Is that true?
