Deep-Fried Maple Leaves Are a Popular Snack in Japan

Maple Tempura is a fall delicacy that originated 1000 years ago in Japan.  Before you grab the rakings from your back yard for a tv snack here is the process:

  • The leaves are  selected and preserved in salt barrels for over a year. 
  • Then, they’re removed from the salt and dipped in a batter made from flour, sesame seeds and sugar. 
  • These batter-coated leaves are then deep fried for over 20 minutes, until crisp.
  • Enjoy!
