Filipino turon consists of a plantain wrapped like a spring roll and then deep fried -- sort of like banana lumpia. The Tagalog word turon comes from the Spanish turrón, a nougat confection that's a traditional dessert at Christmas. The most common turon filling is the saba variety of banana. Jackfruit is also added as a filling. The rolls may be dusted with brown sugar before frying.
Many have been revolutionizing the preparation of turon by not just using the popular banana as the main ingredient. There have been many variations by using other ingredients using different fruits, root crops, and other alternatives to the banana and jackfruit combination. Others have even made a "halo-halo" turon with ice cream on top.
I also thought of using apples as my main ingredient just like how they prepare the apple pies at a certain fastfood restaurant that is very popular with kids.
Well, the idea came to me when I saw the apples in the refrigerator being invisible to the members of my household. These apples were being ignored and I was worried they will just rot. I've also noticed mom has bought some lumpia wrappers so I decided to make a confection out of it.
