1 ˝ c ground pork or beef, cooked
1 pkg Wonton wrappers
1 tbls green onion, finely chopped
Oil for frying
˝ c. celery, finely chopped
˝ c bean sprouts
2 tbls soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbls water
1/4 tsp pepper

1 tbls flour mixed with 2 tbls water

Combine all. Place a small ball of meat mixture (1 teaspoon or more) in the center of a wonton wrapper. Dip finger in paste and run finger around all edges of the wrapper. Fold it corner to corner to form a triangle. Then fold each “wing” in (like a diaper!). Use paste to secure them.

Drop wontons into a pan of hot oil. Fry until edges are golden, then flip wontons. When both sides are golden brown, remove to a paper towel to drain. May be kept warm in oven on low heat until all are prepared. Serve with sweet and sour sauce.

Sweet and Sour Sauce
1/4 c brown sugar (more if pineapple is unsweetened)
2 tbls cornstarch
1 c pineapple juice or an 8 oz can crushed pineapple, plus the drained juice and water added to make 1 cup. (Or substitute 1 c orange juice, or 1 c strawberry preserves and 1 c water )
1/4 c vinegar
2 tbls ketchup

Mix sugar and cornstarch. Add liquids, vinegar and ketchup. Stir to thicken over medium heat. Add pineapple.
