|Some of end of season Sherrill tree apples|
After a great deal of pondering and imagination about what would surprise the hubster the most, I had it, I would make apple fritters from scratch, the small little ones that would be a few nibbles, light and airy, not heavy and doughy and more fresh apples and fresh ground cinnamon.

So I used about 12 apples of varying degrees of imperfection,peeled and cut into nice chunks These produced a little less than 4 cups of apples. heated them up with about 2 tablespoons of butter and 3 tbs of brown sugar for just a few minutes until a syrup ran. Then beat together 2 yolks of eggs and added a cup of flour and pinch of salt and 2 pinches of baking soda and powder and 3/4 cup of apple cider. Add the cooled apples/butter/sugar to this mixture. Then whisk the 2 egg whites and gently fold in the mixture. Drop by serving spoons into oil that is 350 degree fahrenheit. Keep oil between 300 and 350 F as you fry. Drain and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on them. Eat warm and share!

So with my last refrigerator drawers full of The Garry Farm apples, I shall treasure each apple and enjoy them fully. And I thank The Lord for such a bountiful Apple season..... LITLA!
One of my favorite verses about Apples:
Psa 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.......
