The following recipe has a certain ``history'' in Callahans, it being the potstickers that I (the Grey Lady) have brought in a number of times. P'relan and Birith have been particular fans in the past, as is the BFG. This recipe has been requested (and sent) to a number of callahaners, who have (as I recall) universally acclaimed it once they tried it. The most recent sending of the recipe elicited the comment that these were really great, as they don't `stick to the pot' as too many of these recipes do.

So, without further ado, comes the following cookbook submission for potstickers, from the Grey Lady with thanks to John Lind and credit to Carole Gee.

Other fillings:

Mix all ingredients except meat and cornstarch. Add meat, mix thoroughly. Dust cornstarch over all, fold in. Cover and let stand, at least 30 minutes or over night.

Sweet and Sour sauce

1 10 ounce [280 gram] jar of plum preserves 2 9 ounce [255 gram] jars of chutney (recommend Major Grey's) 1/2 tsp. salt 2 Tbsp. brown sugar vinegar to taste (about 1/4 cup)

Combine preserves and chutney in small sauce pan, heat to gentle boil. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer 5 minutes, then put up or serve.

Traditional sauce

Combine equal parts of soy sauce and sesame oil, shake well and serve. For rich, outstanding results, use imported dark soy sauce and roasted sesame oil.
