dumplings on New Year’s Day! . . .

by mulberryshoots

We had some visitors here for lunch today. They were people whom I had known 20-30 years ago. I realized upon seeing them again that I really didn’t know them at all or even if I ever had.

For New Year’s Day, I made chive-pork dumplings, making wrappers from flour and warm water. It’s not a complicated recipe but it does take care and some time. Here are some photos of them ready to go into the pan for browning and then steaming until the bottoms are crisp!
