   24                    won-ton wrappers
                         oil for frying
                         filling:
      1/3  cup           chopped walnuts
    6                    medjool dates, pitted -- coarsely chopped
    3      tablespoons   crystallized ginger -- chopped
    1      tablespoon    grated lemon rind
    2      teaspoons     butter -- softened
 
 
 *The palm date is the one western cooks are familar with, the best of which are
 the large, moist, sweet Medjool from California.
 
 Combine filling ingredients and mix well. To make each wonton, place 1 tsp
 filling in center of each wrapper; keep remaining wrappers covered. Brush
 edges of wrapper with water and fold wrapper in half to form a triangle.
 Pinch edges to seal. Pull the corners of the folded side together, moisten
 one corner, press to seal. Keep finished wontons covered. Heat oil to 360 at
 med-high heat. Deep fry until golden, turning occasionally, 2-3 min. Drain.
 Serve hot or cold.
