We are staying with our friends Jeff and Anna in Florida and on Saturday they hosted a Chinese dumpling making party. They had invited another couple and their daughter to join us. Anna and her friend Georgia chopped up all the ingredients and made the meat mixture and then the rest of us pitched in to do the dumpling wrapping.Wrapping up the dumplings properly takes skill and practice and……. plenty of concentration.Naomi, Jeff and Anna’s oldest daughter had her own technique which the rest of us tried to follow. Anna found a video on You Tube that provided step by step dumpling wrapping instructions.Dave had his own technique and didn’t hesitate to double wrap when he thought he needed to. Part of the trick was putting just the right amount of meat mixture onto your wrapand then pinching the edges properly so the meat didn’t come out during cooking. The dumplings were placed on a floured tray when they were done and stored in ziplock bags dusted with more flour. They could then be taken out as needed to be boiled or fried or used in soups. We had dumplings in chicken broth with noodles for supper that night. Reminded us so much of the delicious won ton mein soup we used to order at restaurants in Hong Kong where we all lived and worked for a number of years.
