Yesterday I mentioned canning items for gifts and today I did a little canning myself! Around this time of year I start thinking about Eggrolls for some reason. Maybe because my dad always made them this time of year or when it started to get colder. I decided to make some today for lunch but first, this morning, I made some Sweet and Spicy dipping sauce and canned 4 jars to give away as gifts.
I am giving away this Ball Home Canning Discovery Kit so that you can make your own gifts– or give the kit away as a gift, that works too!
To enter to win, just leave a comment below. The contest is open to U.S. residents only. I am paying for the shipping (as well as the product) myself and am unable to ship internationally at this time. I will pick one winner at random this coming Friday, November 12th.
UPDATE: Congratulations to Emily! Her number was chosen by Random.org and won the canning kit.
Now, onto the Eggrolls! They are very easy to make.
You will need:
1 bag of cole slaw mix
2 chicken breasts, grilled
2 tablespoons ginger root, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
soy sauce, to taste
oil for frying
Simply grill the chicken and chop it. Soften cole slaw mix over medium heat for just a few minutes. Add garlic and ginger. Cook for a few more minutes just to soften the ingredients. Add chicken and mix well. Splash in a few doses of soy sauce. Take about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and fill each wrapper. Read the back of the package for directions on how to do so. Fry in hot oil and enjoy. Dip in soy sauce, sweet and sour, sweet and spicy, hot mustard, etc.
