包馄饨 Make Wonton


This week, we wrapped wontons. Uncle picked up a square wonton wrapper and gave us a demonstration: first put a little meat filling, fold it in three, and then turn the dough on both sides to the back and press it. A wonton wrap is ready. We followed uncle's example and started making wontons. Uncle found that the wonton wrappers he bought were a little dry, so he suggested that we soak the sealing part with water so that the wontons would not easily fall apart during cooking. We've found wrapping wontons to be a really fun process that's easy and quick. Because Zichen is a southerner, we also know that wontons and glutinous rice balls are eaten during Chinese New Year in the south.
