      6    Dried Chinese black
           -mushrooms
      6 oz Shrimp, shelled and deveined
      1 ts Salt
  1 1/2 tb Peanut oil
      6 oz Ground pork butt
    1/4 c  Finely diced bamboo shoots
    1/4 c  Finely diced water
           -chestnuts, preferably fresh
      2    Green onions, chopped
      2 ts Sugar
    1/4 ts White pepper
      1 tb Shao Hsing rice wine or dry
           -sherry
  1 1/2 ts Light soy sauce

  These dumplings make great finger food for a cocktail party. They can
  be prepared entirely in advance and reheated a few minutes before
  serving. The wheat starch wrappers have an interesting chewy texture,
  a unique translucent appearance and are absorbent of flavors. Roll
  out the wrappers as thin as possible; otherwise they come out rubbery.
  
  Wheat Starch Wrappers (see recipe) Vegetable oil Light soy sauce, for
  dipping Chinese mustard, for dipping
  
  Cover mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes or until soft and
  pliable. Remove and squeeze out excess water from the mushrooms. Cut
  off the stems at the base and discard them. Finely mince the caps.
  
  Toss the shrimp with salt and let them stand 10 minutes. Rinse well
  with cold water, pat dry thoroughly. Coarsely mince.
  
  Preheat a wok or skillet. when hot, add the peanut oil. over medium-
  high heat, add the mushrooms, shrimps, pork butt, bamboo shoots, water
  chestnuts, and half the green onions; stir-fry until the pork turns
  white. Season with the sugar, white pepper, wine and soy sauce.
  Combine the cornstarch and chicken stock in a small bowl and mix
  until smooth; pour into wok. Stir fry for 1 minute longer. Remove the
  mixture to a shallow plate and mix in the remaining green onion and
  coriander. Allow the filling to cool, then refrigerate it until
  needed.
  
  Makes almost 2 cups of filling.
  
  Prepare the Wheat Starch Wrapper dough.  Pinch off 1-inch balls of
  dough. Lightly oil the ball and flatten it into a thin 3 1/2-inch
  circle. An oiled Chinese cleaver is traditionally used; however, a
  tortilla press or a rolling pin works.  Put 1 large teaspoon of
  filling in the center of the circle.  Fold it in half and pinch the
  edges to seal the filling inside. Repeat with remaining dough and
  filling.
  
  Place dumplings without touching each other on a lightly oiled bamboo
  steamer (or a heat resistant plate). Steam over boiling water for 3
  minutes. Serve hot, dipped in light soy sauce and Chinese mustard.
  Serve with Chinese Mustard, for dipping.
  
  Makes 2 1/2 dozen dumplings.
