1. Beat egg; then combine with flour and water to make a smooth batter. 2. Peel and core apples; cut each in 1/2-inch slices. Dip in batter to coat. 3. Meanwhile heat oil; then deep-fry coated apples until pale golden. Drain on paper toweling. 4. Prepare any of the syrup mixtures below. Then add deep-fried apples and cook, stirring gently, to coat with syrup. 5. Rub a serving platter generously with peanut oil (to keep the fruit from sticking). Transfer apples and syrup to the serving platter and fan a few times to cool slightly. 6. Serve accompanied by a large bowl of water, containing ice cubes. To eat: the diner picks up each apple slice with a fork, tongs or chopsticks; and dips it briefly in the ice water to crystallize the sugar and thus harden the syrup. (The fruit inside will remain warm.) VARIATIONS: 1. In step 1, prepare the batter by combining 2 egg whites, 2 tablespoons flour and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. 2. Omit step 1. Instead dip apple slices in beaten egg; then dredge lightly in flour to coat. 3. In step 4, add with the apples either 1 tablespoon chopped nutmeats or black sesame seeds. 4. For the apples, substitute sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in 1/2- by 2-inch strips. Deep-fry these without batter. Add to the syrup as in step 4. Pick up steps 5 and 6. SYRUP MIXTURES FOR HONEYED APPLES: a. Combine 1/2 cup sugar with enough peanut oil to moisten, and cook, stirring, over low heat until the sugar dissolves and becomes syrupy. (You may also add 1/4 cup light corn syrup.) b. Bring to a boil, stirring, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water. Then stir in 1 tablespoon peanut oil and cook over medium heat until the mixture turns brown and spins a heavy thread when a small amount is dropped from the tip of a spoon. (Add corn syrup as above.) c. Combine 1/2 cup honey and 1/4 cup peanut oil and cook, stirring, over low heat until the mixture is hot and syrup like. From
