  POT ROAST: Mix wine, vinegar, 1 1/2 cups water, the onion,

  Remove roast from marinade and pat dry. Strain marinade, reserving
  liquid and discarding onion and spices. Melt shortening in Dutch
  oven. Brown roast in hot shortening about 10 minutes. Remove roast;
  pour off fat.
  Heat 2 cups of the reserved marinade and 1/2 cup water to boiling in
  Dutch 1 minute. Thinly slice brisket diagonally across grain; serve
  with gravy.
  Remove roast to heated platter; cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  Measure liquid in Dutch oven into large measuring cup; skim off fat.
  Add enough reserved marinade to measure 2 1/2 cups if necessary. (If
  liquid measures more than 2 1/2 cups, boil rapidly to reduce amount
  to 2 1/2 cups.) Heat liquid and gingersnap crumbs over medium heat,
  Stirring frequently, 10 minutes; strain. Serve gravy with roast and
  Potato Dumplings.

  butter in 8-inch skillet. Cook bread cubes in butter oven medium
  heat, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  Mix flour, farina, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, the nutmeg, pepper and
  potatoes. Stir in eggs; beat until dough holds its shape. Flour hands
  lightly. Shape about 2 tablespoons dough into ball. Press hole in

  into ball again. Repeat with remaining dough and bread crumbs.
  Heat water and 2 teaspoons salt to boiling in 6- to 8-quart kettle.
