for 1 minute. Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 T water, and combine with
sherry, soy sauce, and ginger; add to the pork mixture and bring to a boil,
stirring. Remove from heat and cool. Stack the egg roll wrappers and cut
in half to form rectangles. Forming one roll at a time, place a heaping a
teaspoonful of pork mixture on one end of rectangle, moisten the long
edges, and roll up. Press the edges together to seal. Egg roll may be
prepared to this point, then refrigerated for several hours or overnight or

are frozen, let them thaw before cooking. Heat the oil to 375 degrees F.

all sides. Frying will take about 4 to 5 minutes; turn rolls once. Drain
on paper towels and keep warm while frying the remaining rolls. Serve with

sugar, ginger, and salt with 3/4 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to
