Chinese Silk Apples

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Desserts, Chinese

 Ingredients List

  • 3 Apples
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 2 tb Flour
  • 2 tb Cornstarch
  • Peanut oil for deep frying
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 1/3 c Water
  • 1 tb Peanut oil


Quite an experience to eat - the apples is still warm and soft, the top is
crunchy and icy. Great after a wok dinner.

Peel the apples, core and cut into wedges about 1/2 inch thick. Whip egg
whites until frothy. Add flour and cornstarch and beat into a smooth
batter. Heat the oil to 375F. Dip each apple wedge into egg white batter,
place in hot oil and try, a few at a time, until crisp and brown. Place in
a single layer on a warm service platter. Bring remaining ingredients to a
boil in a saucepan and cook to a hard ball stage syrup; 280 F on candy
thermometer. Pour over apple wedges and serve at once, accompanied by a
large crystal bowl of water containing lots of ice cubes. Each person picks
up an apple wedge with a fork or small tongs and dips it into the ice water
to crystallize the sugar and harden the top, which forms silk-like
threads....hence the name. Serves 6.
