Steam Heat

Today I wasted a sizable portion of my afternoon making these Jade Dumplings from epicurious.com. They are full of asparagus, sunchokes, mung bean sprouts, ginger, garlic, chickweed, carrot, reconstituted shitakes, and pretty much anything else that was lying around. I raided the farmer's market this morning, so quite a lot was lying around. I just haven't had much luck making wonton wrappers that aren't thick and doughy, so I have reconciled myself to buying them. Thanks to Ellen for the big steamer, I think it's about to get a lot more use.
