free hit counter Knit-Whit: Wontons

Sunday, November 05, 2006


Recently my mom mentioned she wanted to make wontons, something we used to do occasionally with a recipe my aunt brought back from when she lived in Japan. This afternoon my mom came over and we whipped up a batch while watching the football game. The recipe is simple, the construction is putsy. We started by mixing the pork, onion, water chestnut, soy sauce, salt & pepper.
Then we placed a dollop of pork mixture onto a wonton wrapper and folded them into tiny envelopes.
We sealed them with a beaten egg and froze them on cookie sheets before we placed them in freezer bags. Thanks to my mom's quick math skills ;-) the recipe yielded us 15 dozen wontons. Plenty for the upcoming holiday season, they'll be a great time saving appetizer for all those last minute parties.
Of course we had to try a few to make sure they were as good as we remembered, and they were. Thanks for the great idea mom!
