Recipe Wednesday! PUPPIES + FRITTERS!

Here are recipes for the kind you eat, not the kind that chews your shoes and whines! One savory, one sweet, and hot apple fritters. MMMMMM...The first cool nights in fall make me want to fry up delicious snacks. They bring back autumn memories of homemade, spicy, cinnamon-sugar dusted DONUTS; bouncy, chilly, scratchy HAYRIDES; and fresh-pressed, cold, UNpasteurized CIDER. FALL is my FAVORITE SEASON!

Drop the batter into hot oil by tablespoons. Fry to a golden brown for about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain. **************************************** SWEET CORN HUSH PUPPIES >>>Ingredients: * 1 cup cornmeal * 1 cup flour * 3 tablespoons sugar * 1 (16 ounce) can creamed corn * 1 onion, diced * 1 egg * 1/2 cup buttermilk * 1 teaspoon vegetable oil * vegetable oil (for frying) >>>Directions: Mix all ingredients until blended.

In a second bowl, add milk, one egg yolk and butter. In a third bowl, add 2 egg whites and beat until peaks are stiff. Whisk contents of bowl #1 into bowl #2 until smooth. Gently fold in the egg whites. Pour oil into a medium, pot until it is 2 inches deep. Heat oil until it reaches 350°F. Dip apple rings into batter, then fry for approximately 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn once. Serve while warm. ******************************************* "Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree." ~Martin Luther
