Honey Apples

Ingredients:

5 cooking apples, peeled, cored and cut into 4 rings.

3/4 confectioners’ sugar

1 lemon, sliced

Syrup:

2/3 cup brown sugar

4 tbsp. clear honey

1 cup water

Juice of 2 lemons

For syrup, add sugar, honey and water into a large saucepan. Bring to boil, then boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in lemon juice.

Batter:

1 cup flour

1/4 tsp. salt

2 tsp. sugar

3 egg yolks

3/4 cup water

3 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Vegetable oil for deep fry

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Beat in the egg yolks and water until the mixture forms a smooth batter. Quickly fold in the egg whites.

Directions:

Drop the apple rings into the syrup and carefully stir the apples to coat the rings thoroughly with the syrup. Set aside for 1 hour.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the apple rings to the batter, and stir to coat them completely. Discard the syrup. Set the apples aside.

Fill a large saucepan one-third full with oil and heat until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit on a deep fat thermometer.

Carefully lower the apple rings into the oil, a few at a time, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen towels.

Put the confectioners’ (icing) sugar on a large plate. Dip the apples in the sugar and arrange them on a serving dish.

Decorate with lemon slices.
