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
- 1 egg
- 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.
Serve with sugar or Roger's Golden syrup and a good cup of coffee!
