Today has been a wonderful day. Bible study with a dear friend; great visit with neighbors; new (to me) stove delivered to my garage; and the most gorgeous of days where the leaves are slowly falling like a gentle rain.
Man, I love fall.
The stove means one thing. Actual several things. Bacon. Onions. Grease in general.
We’ll start with fried fritters. My husband loves apple fritters. They are incredibly unhealthy and personally I don’t care for them. Not true – I don’t care for the store bought overly fried frosting covered “apple” fritters.
Yesterday my uncle sent us home with a huge bag of apples, so it was a perfect time to a) make by husband happy b) use some delicious apples and c) try out the new stove.
I thought the apples would be perfect for dehydrating, but they are way too good for that.
I’ve never made apple fritters before and it was incredibly easy. I added a little bit of this and a little bit of that – and came up with a pretty good fritter recipe.
Start out by heating your oil up. Then start on your batter. I used about 4 apples which yielded about 2 cups. I chopped them pretty fine.
Add the apples at the end and just gently fold them in.
I used a small scooper that was filled about half way.
Take a little dough or a popcorn kernel (thanks Mary!) and make sure the oil is ready.
Let them fry for about 30 seconds or so on each side. The first batch I made were a little too big and ended up being slightly doughy in the middle. – That’s when I decided about half a scoop or even a little less is the way to go.
I sprinkled them with a little organic powdered sugar.
They were delicious. Way better than the boughten.
I’m pretty sure supper will be something with bacon…
