Does it make you want to declutter and clean things out? Does it make you want to curl up by the fire with a warm cup of hot cocoa? Does it make you want to whip out your recipes of soups?
For me, it's all of the above. One of our very favorite things about fall is looking forward to these.
They are Honeycrisp apples and we only get the chance to enjoy these in the Fall. I plan on making some applesauce, rustic tarts and some apple fritters with Honeycrisp this season. They have a wonderful texture and flavor and my most favorite thing to do is slice one up and eat it raw. The best thing about them is that if you slice them up and decide to eat them later, they won't have that brownish look on them when you eat them. They flesh stays looking as if you just sliced it.
Below I am sharing my apple fritter batter with you. I hope you take some time out and enjoy some apples this Autumn season.
APPLE FRITTER BATTER
3 to 4 large apples, peeled and chopped
1 C. flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 C. milk
1 T. melted fat
Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and eggs. Drop your chopped apples into the batter and combine so that all the apples are coated with the batter. Then drop your a few spoonfulls of the batter in the fat and let it fry up and then turn. They should be golden brown. I like to place them on paper towels to drain them and cool slightly and then serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top or not.
Tomorrow I will share some soup recipes I like to make during the Autumn season.
