What is a fritter you ask?  A fritter is a fried cake or dough with fruit, meat or vegetables inside.  They can be deep fried or pan fried.

Fritters are believed to have been first consumed by the Ancient Romans, who later introduced them to Europe.

Some of the more common fillings inside a fritter would be various meats, seafood, fruit, cheese or vegetables.  Here in the United States, "Corn Fritters", "Apple Fritters" and "Zucchini Fritters" are well known favorites.

How about trying one on this special day.  You might just like them.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!
