Another quick and easy snack served at our Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24 high school reunion over Thanksgiving. This is more of an ‘Americanized’ version of the usual TURON or banana spring roll, a dessert/snack made of banana slices and jackfruit strips wrapped in spring roll wrapper, dipped in brown sugar then deep fried. For this version, I substituted granny smith apples for the bananas, no jackfruit slices (of course you can add them if you want) and sprinkled the apple slices with brown sugar before wrapping in spring roll wrapper.
- 4 granny smith apples
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 8 sheets spring roll wrapper
- oil for frying
- Peel, core apples. Slice thinly. Divide into 8 equal parts.
- Place one part onto center of spring roll wrapper. Sprinkle with approx 1 tbs brown sugar (or more if required). Roll (like spring rolls). Repeat with the rest and set aside.
- Heat cooking oil on high. When hot enough, fry apple rolls quickly (abougt 3 minutes each side) until light brown. Drain on paper towels or rack.
- Serve warm.
Notes: You can add strips of jackfruit, cinnamon or use vanilla sugar instead of brown sugar.
