Pitching to a hungry audience is shooting yourself in the foot, so bring along some tasty treats - preferably sugary stuff - to boost client focus and mood. It WILL make a significant difference in the success or productivity of your meeting or pitch. This week’s sugar spell: peach wontons.
Last week, we combined a cheesecake with a cinnamon roll to make a tasteful absurdity I sometimes call a cinnamon-roll cheesecake, but this week, the American South meets the Asian East as we turn wontons into a delightful peach desert. Surprisingly, peach wontons are pretty easy to make. Now, let’s stop talking about it, and let’s get to cookin’ - I’m hungry!
Step 0 - Gather Your Materials
+ Two pounds of RIPE, sweet peaches
+ Two tablespoons of all-purpose flour
+ Three tablespoons of brown sugar
+ Wonton wraps
+ Canola or vegetable oil
+ Powdered sugar
Step 1 - Prepare the Delicious Peaches
+ Cut up the peaches into small slices. Grab a big bowl, and toss the peaches with some flour and brown sugar.
Step 2 - Wrap the Delicious Peaches
+ Lay down the wontons on a flat surface. Place a small pile of sliced peaches on each wrap. When you run out of peaches, it’s a good idea to drop a little bit of the leftover peach juice in the center of each pile.
+ Next, wrap the peaches by rubbing a tiny amount of water to the edges of the wonton wraps; then, fold them into any shape you want. For more intricate folds, you might need to apply more water as you do more and more folds.
Step 3 - Fry the Delicious Peaches
+ Heat about one-inch of oil in a pan over medium-high heat. The temperature of the oil should reach about 375°F.
+ Dry each wonton with a dry paper towel before frying. Fry them in small batches for about two or three minutes. Turn the wontons as they cook for best results. Once they appear golden brown, they are done.
+ Lay them on some paper towels to absorb some of the excess oil; then, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
+ Now, eat ‘em up! And take a few seconds to thank She Wears Many Hats for the original recipe, and these beautiful pics. Check her page for more delicious photos.
