Fried:

Ingredients

vegetable oil (for frying)
2 dozen chicken wings, tips removed and discarded
1 cup cornstarch (approximately)
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 scallions, finely diced
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
1 cup berry preserves
2 Italian cherry peppers or 4 pickled jalapeno peppers, finely diced
2 tablespoons orange juice

Instructions

In a large, deep cast-iron frying pan (or deep-fat fryer), heat 2 inches of oil to 375°.

In a large bowl, toss chicken wings well in cornstarch to coat, and set aside.
