Fruits, Desserts, and Other Sweet Foods

Persimmon Packets
3 persimmons, coarsely chopped
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 small chili pepper, seeds discarded, then minced
3 slices fresh ginger, minced
1 Tablespoon almond slices
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
20 spring roll wrappers
1 cup vegetable oil

1. Put persimmon pieces in a medium-size pot, add the honey, lemon juice, chili pepper pieces, and the ginger and stir well.
2. Mix in cornstarch with one tablespoon cold water, heat and stir this until it thickens, about one minute, then remove to an empty bowl and allow to cool.
3. Put three tablespoons of the cooled mixture on one wrapper, fold in the edges, then roll and seal with a few drops of water. Place the wrapped item seam side down on a clean plate.
4. In a clean wok or fry pan, add the oil and deep fry these packets until they are golden on all sides, then drain on paper towels, cut them in half on an angle, and stand them on the folded end, and serve.
