Candied Apple Fritters

  Howz it going for you guys?  I have been super lazy to cook.  I have also started another walking regime which makes me very reluctant to cook, fearing I will be overdoing the calories.  None of this works though.  I walk and then eat well too.  I use all this as just an excuse not to cook.  Anyways, here is a very tasty apply recipe for you which I made when my guard was down and I craved sugar.

Apple Fritters

  I have never had apple fritters before yesterday. Today,  I am in love.  To begin with I had some apples which were sure to rot if it sat any longer in the nice glass dish I had it displayed on the kitchen counter.  My friend J called me last week and told me she was making apple scallops.  I decided to try it myself but then got the idea of fritters and then candying it and decided candied sounds like fun. A lot of recipes online suggest we make the batter with eggs, however, since we make banana fritters without it I went along with out eggs.  It came out well, if I may say so myself. 


Apple Dessert

  Making it candied was not the easiest process but if you are serving it for dessert for a party the effort is worth your while. However, if you are trying to cut down on sugar stop with the fritters and enjoy them as they are.   

Apple Fritters
Ingredients:
Red Delicious Apples                   - 4 cut into chunks or thin if you like it nicely cooked
Corn Starch                                 - 1 Tbspn
All purpose flour                          - 1/2 cup
Water                                          - to make a loose batter to dip and fry the apples
Salt                                              - to taste
Oil                                               - for deep frying

Sugar Coating
Sugar                     - 1/2 cup
Water                    - 3 Tbspn

Method:
1. Slice apples, dust with corn starch and set aside
2. Dip in batter and deep fry to golden brown and drain on a kitchen towel (paper napkin)

Coating
1. Heat the water and add sugar a little at a time dissolving after each addition
2. Bring the syrup to a golden brown color
3. Dip in ice cold water holding the apples on a fork and let it be for a few seconds allowing the sugar to solidify
4. Drain water by holding it vertically on a paper towel and set on the serving dish
5. Follow this with all the apple pieces and then sprinkle with sesame seeds
6. The sugar will become hard quickly so work in small batches
7. If sugar syrup solidifies re heat on low flame stirring continuously.
