Fried apple slices can be served savory with a sprinkle of salt or sweet with a dusting of powdered sugar. When you deep fry at home, make sure you are actively engaged and use a thermometer to regulate the oil temperature.
Created By: Adam and Joanne Gallagher
4-5 cups vegetable oil, or other high smoke-point oil such as canola oil or peanut oil
1 egg white
1 cup dark white beer, slightly flat
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 Granny Smith or other baking apple, peeled and cored
course sea salt or powdered sugar (depending on how you plan to serve the apples, sweet or savory)
Pour oil into a large saucepan (5-6 quart size) to reach a depth of 2-inches. Heat the oil over medium heat until it reaches 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy then gently stir in the beer, flour, salt, cinnamon and cayenne pepper until smooth.
Slice the apples into ¼-inch rings then pat dry. Working in batches, add the apple slices into the batter, then remove them one by one, allowing any excess batter to drip off and carefully place into the oil. Fry for about 1 minute on each side until golden. Remove the fried apples from the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer to paper towels. Immediately sprinkle each slice with a pinch of course salt or if serving as a dessert, with powdered sugar.
