Sweet and Sour Sauce:



Special equipment:
a deep-fryer or deep-fry thermometer
  1. For the sweet and sour sauce: Add the sugar, pineapple juice, vinegar, cherry syrup, ketchup and salt to a 3-quart saucepan over medium-low heat and cook, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Combine the cornstarch with 1/4 cup water in a bowl and mix well; add this to the sugar mixture. Turn the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens, 3 to 4 minutes. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  2. For the wontons: Combine the crab, cream cheese, green onions, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl. Mix well to combine; I found using your hands can sometimes be the best way. Lay out the wonton wrappers on a clean work surface. Place 1 tablespoon of the crab mixture in the center of each wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wrappers with a little of the egg wash, then fold each into a triangle. Press to seal the wontons, squeezing out any trapped air; this will ensure that the wontons stay closed during frying.
  3. Heat 2 inches oil in a deep-fryer or a Dutch oven to 375 degrees F. Fry a few wontons at a time until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. When you add the wontons to the oil, the temperature will drop about 10 degrees. Try to keep the temperature maintained at 360 degrees F. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate or sheet pan fitted with a wire rack. Repeat with the remaining wontons. Serve with the sweet and sour sauce and enjoy!
