...they were originally brought to North America from Russia and do well in our climate. They are a wonderful baking apple...the best for pies and applesauce. They are usually ready sometime in July ( a little later this year)...and I always make apple fritters at least once while the apples are fresh on the tree. Yesterday was the day!
1 1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
4 apples pared and diced (2 cups or more)
Blend dry ingredients.
Beat egg and add milk...pour into flour mixture and stir until smooth.
Add apples to batter and blend.
Drop batter from spoon into hot oil.
Cook until golden on one side...
turn and cook until done.
Yield: 12 - 15 fritters
Serve with sugar or Roger's Golden syrup..
and a good cup of coffee!
