Maple pork crispy wonton
28 portions


  • 225g lean ground pork
  • 6 white mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp maple sugar
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 24 won-ton wrappers
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce, for the dip
  • 1 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and oil.
  3. In a bowl, combine pork, mushrooms, green onion, maple sugar, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil to make the stuffing. Add salt and pepper then set aside.
  4. Spoon about 10 ml (2 teaspoons) of stuffing into the centre of each square won-ton wrapper.
  5. Brush around the squares with a little water and close in triangle or half-moon. Press the dough around the stuffing to remove any air bubbles. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients.
  6. Place wontons on a baking sheet, brush with vegetable oil and bake for 25 minutes, flipping if necessary.
  7. While the wontons are baking, mix equal amounts of soy sauce and maple syrup.
  8. Serve wontons with the dipping sauce.

The perfect starter or appetiser, these pork wontons make for a great canapé at parties! Deliciously sweet maple pork pairs perfectly with the crispy Chinese wontons, while the maple syrup and soy sauce dip provides the finishing touches. This dumpling recipe takes less than an hour to prepare and can feed as many as fifteen people.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
