Recipe for Apple Fritters


3/4 cup flour
4 each eggs; beaten
1 pinch pepper
1/8 teaspoon saffron
2 each to 3 apples
1 confectioner's sugar; for garnish


"Sift the flour and mix with the beaten eggs to make a smooth batter. Add the pepper and saffron. "Peel, core, and slice the apples, put them into the batter and leave for 1 hour. This will allow the saffron to colour and flavour the batter. Drop by large spoonfuls into deep fat heated to 375f and fry for 3 to 4 minutes; the fritters will rise to the surface when cooked and should be a golden brown. Drain, sprinkle with con- fectioner's sugar and serve hot."

From _Ancient Cookery_, 1381 "For to make fritters: Nym flour and eyerin and grind pepper and saffron and make thereto a batter & pare apples and cut them to broad pieces and cast them therein and fry them in the batter with fresh grease and serve it forth."
