My step-mother was from Manila and settled in San Francisco after WWII. She made hundreds of lumpia at a time and kept them in the freezer. Her recipe was quite involved. Ground beef, pork sausage, baby shrimp, bok choy, green cabbage, shredded green beans and carrots, ginger, chestnuts,garlic onion and green onion, fish sauce, soy sauce. I've taken up the tradition of spending 1 or 2 days a year making hundreds for the freezer and cook them up for company, parties, and sending some home with visitors just like my step-mother did. I'm teaching my daughter and granddaughters and a few interested friends how to make lumpia. Great opportunity to sit and roll and chat and laugh.
