16 ounces ground pork

1 inch peeled ginger

2 cloves garlic

3 tablespoons brewed soy sauce

2 tablespoons sliced green onion

48 wonton wrappers

Mince together ginger and garlic until it almost forms a paste.

Apricot Plum Sauce


4 tablespoons butter

1 inch peeled ginger, cut into 4 thick slices

1/2 cup dried apricots, diced

3 black plums, pitted and diced - skin on

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon fresh cilantro - minced


Melt butter over very low heat.

Add ginger and simmer until fragrant - about 5 minutes.

Toss in apricots and plums, stir and continue simmering until apricots are soft and fruits begin to caramelize.

Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Once cooled, puree with honey, orange juice and cilantro until smooth.
