Top Most Best Tanghulu Recipe

Prepare these ingredients: fresh strawberries, grapes, orange segments, white sugar, water, light corn syrup, and wooden skewers for assembling the Tanghulu.


Begin by pat drying all the fruits using paper towels. This step ensures that the fruits are dry, allowing the sugar syrup to coat them evenly for a perfect Tanghulu.

Recipe Step 1

Thread one piece each of strawberry, grape, and orange onto a wooden skewer, repeating the process for all five skewers. Make sure the fruits are touching and cover the end of each skewer with fruit.

Recipe Step 2

In a small saucepan, combine the white sugar, water, and light corn syrup. Mix the ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil without stirring. Cook for 18 to 20 minutes or until a candy thermometer registers 300°F (150°C).

Recipe Step 3

Once the sugar syrup reaches the desired temperature, remove the pan from heat and let it sit for 1 to 2 minutes until the bubbles subside. Tilt the pan to one side and dip each skewer into the sugar mixture, rotating to fully coat them.

Recipe Step 4

After coating, place each dipped skewer in an ice bath for about 1 minute to cool and harden the sugar coating. Work quickly to ensure the sugar sets properly on the Tanghulu skewers.

Recipe Step 5

Once the Tanghulu skewers are cooled and the sugar coating has hardened, remove them from the ice bath and serve immediately for a delightful sweet treat.
