Hints and tips
• In preparation for wrapping your wontons, set up a bowl of warm water. Once the wonton packet is open, keep the wrappers in the packaging, or under a moist towel to prevent drying out.
• Wontons and broth can both be frozen for up to 3 months.
• To freeze wontons, space out on a tray lined with baking paper. Cover with cling wrap and flash freeze until firm.
Once firm, transfer wontons into freezer bags or containers.
• To freeze broth, transfer into a vacuum sealing bag (we recommend freezing in smaller batches of 500 ml). Place into vacuum sealing drawer and Vacuum on setting 1 and Seal on setting 3.
• To cook wontons from frozen, Steam at 100°C for 10 minutes.
• To heat the broth from frozen, Steam at 100°C for 20 minutes.
