Pork Wontons with Ginger Honey and Riverbench Bedrock Chardonnay

Who ever heard of garlic honey? We have, thanks to local beekeeper David Maislen! Try this delicious concoction (along with its partner, garlic honey) in curries, stir fries, and these amazingly yummy wontons.

• 1 lb. ground pork
• 1 tbsp. lemongrass
• 1 tsp. soy sauce
• 2 garlic cloves, minced
• 1 egg
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
• 1 package won ton wrappers
• 1 tbsp. ginger honey
• 2 tbsp. water
• 1 tsp. red chile flakes

To make the wontons: mix the pork, lemongrass, soy sauce, garlic, and eggs together. Season with salt and pepper. Put one rounded teaspoon into each wonton and fold to close. You might want to use a tiny bit of water to seal the edges.

In a non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add as many wontons as will fit and brown slightly on the bottoms, about 5 minutes. Add some water so that the entire bottom of the pan is covered, then cover the pot and steam for 5 minutes.

To make the dipping sauce, combine the honey, water, and chile flakes over medium heat until melted and warm.

The wontons freeze well- if you have too many, freeze them on a baking sheet before cooking, then put into a freezer bag for another time.
