Every January and February, I sit down and make big batches of dumplings.
Not that they are not any good other times of the year but the beginning of the year I especially crave dumplings. I have very fond memories of making dumplings with the whole family, every New Year’s celebration: everyone sitting around a large table, talking and laughing, with every surface of the house covered with trays of dumplings. We would make hundreds of them, eating plates and plates of dumplings as we are making more of them. It’s not that hard, I can make 50 in about 15 minutes once the filling and the wraps are made.
