The kids and I had fun making these delicious ginger pork dumplings.
Place some ground pork in a large bowl. Dice up fresh garlic and ginger. Mix into the pork with a little soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Set aside to be used for the filling.
Get some dumpling wrappers (won ton wrappers, egg roll wrappers, whatever you can find). Set up a floured surface and a small ramekin of water.
Place about a tablespoon of the pork filling in the middle of the wrapper. Brush water around the outside edge of the wrapper. Flip over to create a half-moon shape. Crimp the edge with a fork. Get the kids involved in this assembly line process.
If you have a steamer, you can steam the dumplings. I boiled them in salted water and then pan fried them.
I made a dipping sauce with soy sauce, raspberry preserves, ginger, and green onion.
