Maple, beer & chili-glazed chicken wings
· 3 quarts of water

· 3 Tablespoons corn starch
· 3 Tablespoons water
· 3 Tablespoons malt vinegar
· 1½ teaspoon salt
· 1 bunch chopped scallions

Bring 3 quarts of water to boil. Add salt and chicken drummettes and simmer for
5 minutes, then remove and cool. In 1-quart saucepan bring to boil malt
vinegar, beer, maple syrup and chili. Dissolve cornstarch in 3 Tablespoons of
water and whisk into maple syrup sauce. Simmer 1 minute and remove. Preheat
oven to 400 degrees. Dip wings into sauce and place onto buttered cookie
sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove and serve topped with scallions and a side
bowl of sauce for dipping. Salt to taste. Cut down on the chili paste if you
desire less spice. -serves 8
