LUMPIA MAKING IN THE PROVINCE_1182_resized

Lumpia Making In The Province – Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.  Pina Gempis reaches into the shopping bag.  Leneil Saldana straightens the ingredients on the spoon.  Vergie Saldana takes a banana break.  Analyn rolls a lumpia wrapper, while Endoy reaches for the lumpia ingredients with a spoon.  Edwin Saldana watches and smiles.  Lumpia is a Filipino favorite that is like a burrito or an egg roll.  Christy Warren and the Saldana women all have their recopies for making lumpia, which can be a time-consuming process.  However, once the lumpia is rolled, it can be placed in the ice box until it is time to cook.  Lumpia is a great snack and with fried rice can make for a complete meal.  The Saldana women and their male recruits rolled the lumpia as one of the foods to be served, during this Holy Week.  Photo by Samuel E.

LUMPIA READY TO COOK_1183_resized

Lumpia Ready To Cook – Photo by Samuel E. Warren Jr.  This plate of lumpia is ready to cook.  What makes lumpia preparation time consuming is the chopping up of the ingredients like carrots, onions, bell pepper, and pork.  Lumpia wrapper tend to be extremely thin, thus, the wrappers stick together quite easily and you have to have patience to carefully separate the wrappers from each other.  In the States, when Christy could not find lumpia wrappers, she would use egg roll wrappers, which also work well.  Once the lumpia is wrapped, it simply has to be cooked.  The cooking process is more like frying, but the lumpia rolls turn out to be a crispy, delicious, golden brown.  No doubt there are many places on the World Wide Web were you can find a lumpia recipe, but if you want Christy’s Lumpia Recipe, then, you will have to email me at samuelwarren55@gmail.com  Photo by Samuel E.
