How to Make Honeyed Apples

  • Remove from the heat and stir in the white wine vinegar.
  • To make the batter:
  • Sift the flour and salt into a bowl, then stir in the water and oil.
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks and then fold them into the batter.
  • Heat the oil in a wok. Spear each piece of apple in, turn on a skewer, dip in the batter and fry in the hot oil until golden.
