Using the corer/slicer from the Weekend Gadget post we made these yummy Fritters. Yes they are work, however most of the work is in the cooking and It really does not take that long to make.
Buttermilk Apple Fritters
4 Gingergold apples, peeled cored and cut in various sizes.
2 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoon Honey
1 cup Buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Vegetable oil for deep frying
-Put cut apples and sugar in bowl, mix and set aside
-Mix together eggs, honey and buttermilk.
-Sift together flour, Baking powder and soda, salt and cinnamon. reserve 2 Tablespoon**.
-Add remainder flour mixture to wet ingredients.This is your batter.
**Add reserve flour mixture to apples and and stir.,
-Fold apples into the batter
Heat 3 inches of oil in a sauce pan or fryer pan to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, use a thermometer for this, It is important that you maintain this temp throughout the cooking.
Once the oil reaches the temp, begin dropping the apple batter by spoon fulls into the oil. Do not walk away from the stove.It is important to stay with the process from here out. They cook rather fast.
You will want to turn them once they are golden brown on the bottom side. remove once golden brown on both sides. Remove and place them on a cooling rack, that way they stay crisp.
