Cinnamon Apple Fries
Hi Rags to Stitches friends!
I am super excited to be sharing delicious recipes with you each month. I figured since its nearly Fall I would start off our foodie relationship with something Autumn inspired…but fried and smothered in caramel. I predict you will soon fall in love…
Let me begin with a confession-I have a passion for fair foods. You know the foods that come on a stick, double fried and totally bad for you. Anyways, I first had a version of these sweet apples at our county fair a few weeks ago. Naturally, I have been craving them ever since but I didn’t have the heart to deep fry an apple at home. It just seemed wrong! So, I came up with a lighter version and I am on a mission to share it with everyone…Because it is that awesome!
And now I will detail how to achieve greatness in your own kitchen…Your welcome!
What You Need;
`Fresh green apples (1 apple is good to serve about 3 people)
`2 cups canola oil
`1 cup cornstarch
`3 tbs cinnamon
`You can melt some caramel for dipping. Or make your own from scratch. Whatever you fancy.
`Wash and cut the apples into fry shapes
`Slowly heat the oil in a deep frying pan.
`In a bowl mix the cornstarch with 1 tbs cinnamon
`Coat the apples in cornstarch and cinnamon right away. Shake off the extra using a strainer.
`In a separate bowl mix the remaining 2 tbs cinnamon and 1/2 cup of sugar. Place aside.
`Once oil has reached 350 degrees, fry apples a few at a time.
`Once the fries are golden brown place on a paper towel to dry. Then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
`Drizzle with caramel or eat plain.
