WONTONS: Place 1 teaspoon of the filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. With a finger dipped in water, moisten 2 adjacent sides and fold over to make a triangle. With both hands hold the triangle by the 2 widest corners and push down so thaat the filled center folds up. Moisten one end and pinch the tqo ends firmly together.

This makes about 50 wontons. Uncooked wontons can be wrapped and kept frozen for 1 to 2 weeks.

Return to a boil, reduce the heat and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

Drain the wontons. Bring the stock to a boil in a pot, add the wontons and return again to a boil. Serve at once.

FRIED WONTON: Wontons can also be deep fried in vegetable oil and eaten as an hors d'oeuvre.
