Fritters, Apple I (P, TNT)
Source: Gourmet, December 2001
Yield: 32 fritters

1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold beer (not dark)
10 cups vegetable oil
2 apples (1 lb), peeled, halved lengthwise, cored, and sliced 1/4" thick
Confectioners' sugar for dusting

Stir together flour, granulated sugar, and salt, then add beer and whisk to combine. Heat oil in a 5-quart heavy pot until thermometer registers 375°F.

Dip apple slices in batter, shaking off excess, and fry, about 8 at a time, until golden, about 1-1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer fritters with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Serve warm, dusted with confectioners sugar.
