DRIED PLUM AND GINGER WONTONS

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 24

Ingredients
• 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
• 6 dried plums, coarsely chopped
• 3 tablespoons chopped crystallized ginger
• 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
• 2 teaspoons butter, softened
• 24 wonton wrappers
• Water, as needed
• Cooking oil, for frying
• Powdered sugar (optional)


Preparation
In small bowl, combine walnuts, dried plums, ginger, lemon peel and butter until well mixed.

For each wonton, brush 1 wrapper with water.

Place 1 teaspoon dried plum mixture onto center.

Fold diagonally in half to form a triangle; seal edge, pressing to remove any air pockets.
Pull together two opposite corners to overlap, pressing to seal.

Repeat with remaining filling and wrappers.
To prevent drying, cover filled wontons with a dry towel.

In wok or 2-quart saucepan, heat oil to 375ºF.

Add wontons, a few at a time; fry 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally.

Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.

Serve hot or cold sprinkled with powdered sugar, if desired.
