APPLE FRIES


HOW DO YOU MAKE APPLE FRIES?
The first thing you need to do to make apple fries is choose your apples. There are countless varieties of apples, but some of them are not suited for frying as they’ll turn to mush. I highly recommend using Granny Smith apples for this recipe, they hold their shape beautifully and are available at every grocery store.

You’ll need to core and peel your apples, then cut them into wedges. Be sure to cut your apples into similar sized wedges so they cook at the same rate.
The next step is to prepare the batter, which is similar to a pancake batter. While you make your batter, heat up some oil for frying.

Each apple slice gets dunked in the batter then goes into the frying pan until golden brown. Finally, roll each apple slice in cinnamon sugar as it comes out of the fryer; be sure to do this right away as the sugar mixture sticks best when the apples are hot.

These apple fries almost taste like apple doughnuts, and they’re even better when you add a little caramel to the mix. You can use caramel ice cream topping, or a tub of caramel apple dip that’s typically found in the produce section near the fresh apples.

These apple fries are definitely a little on the indulgent side, but SO worth it. They always get rave reviews and are super fun to eat.
