    Directions

    In a saucepan, combine the ham hocks, stock, bay leaf, garlic clove and onions together. Bring the liquid to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the ham hocks until the meat is very tender and falling off the bones, about 2 hours. Remove from the heat and cool. Remove the ham hocks from the liquid and shred the meat. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the leeks and saute for 1 minute. Add the pulled ham hock meat and garlic and saute for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and cool. In a mixing bowl, combine the Sauteed ham hock meat, Goat's cheese and parsley together. Mix well. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Place 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center of each wonton. Lightly wet the edges of the wrappers with a little water. Bring one corner of the wrapper to the other and seal completely. Place the wontons, a couple at a time, and fry until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the wontons from the oil and drain on a paper-lined plate. Season the wontons with Essence.
    Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Yield: 2/3 cup
