NATIONAL FRITTERS DAY – December 2

NATIONAL FRITTERS DAY

National Fritters Day on December 2nd allows for no frittering away of the time. So make haste and get them while they are hot!

Fritters come in various forms, from morsels dipped in flavorful batters to bits of dough stuffed or filled with delicious surprises. All of the varieties are deep-fried and served hot with dips, drips, or dustings of seasonings, sweets, or sauces. Cultures all over the world make some kind of fritter. May believe Ancient Romans first consumed fritters. They then introduced them to Europe. Most commonly filled with fruit or cheese, fritters can also be filled with savory meats, seafood, and vegetables.

Fritter FAQ

Q. Are fritters sweet or savory?
A. Fritters can be either sweet or savory. The base ingredient often determines which direction the fritter leans. Potatoes, zucchini, apples, bananas, fish, corn, and cheese can all be used to make fritters.

Q. Are fritters a type of donut?
A. Fritters, especially the sweet kind, are very similar to donuts. Where donuts are usually topped with sweet additions, bakers fold ingredients into fritters. Donuts are also cut into symmetrical shapes, while fritter batter is directly dropped into the oil for cooking.
