Nutritional values

All of the fruit in this recipe scores with lots of vitamins, especially vitamin C from the berries.

Apricots are available from June to September. Alternatively, you can fill the yeast dumplings with strawberries, plums, diced apples, or pears. If you would prefer the dumplings to be savoury, then leave out the sugar and use cherry tomatoes instead of apricots. A salad will then go well with them instead of the berry sauce.

You can use any unflavored oil in place of canola, such as safflower or vegetable oil. Olive oil will definitely work too!
This looks so sweet and good! Because of the quarantine, I only have olive oil. Can I use that instead of canola oil?
