Fusion dessert

My first attempt at dessert wontons was a massive fail involving chocolate ganache. They tasted pretty good, but I ended up with a deep fryer full of burnt chocolate. I've got some ideas about how to achieve chocolate wonton nirvana, but in the meantime decided to try out apple. All in all, it was an excellent decision.

Fried apple wontons

2 green apples, peeled and cored
1 tspn ground cloves
16 wonton wrappers
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
oil for frying
icing sugar for dusting


Mix the sugar and water to together. Microwave on high for 30 seconds and stir. Microwave a further 30 seconds and stir again to dissolve remaining sugar. Microwave on high for one minute to form a clear syrup. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, chop the apple into small pieces and sprinkle with cloves. Add a small amount of water and cook until softened. To assemble the wontons, brush the edges of the wrapper with a little sugar syrup. Place a small spoonful of apple in the middle of the wrapper and fold up edges. Squeeze the edges together to make sure none of the apple escapes. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or heavy-based saucepan. To test if the oil is the right temperature, drop a piece of wonton wrapper in. It should be golden and puffed within 30 seconds. Fry the wontons in small batches until golden brown. Drain well. Keep warm in a pre-heatd oven while completing the batches. Dust with icing sugar and serve with cream or ice cream.
