Mele Fritte
Fried Apple Slices
(Mele Fritte)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
1/4 tsp (7 grams) fresh yeast or 1 teaspoon (5 ml) dried yeast
4 fl oz (100 ml) hot water
4 oz (125 grams) superfine sugar
1 large egg, beaten
3 tablespoons (45 ml) extra virgin olive oil
4 fl oz (100 ml) dry white wine
8 oz (225 grams) plain white flour
1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) salt
4 eating apples
1/2 pint (300 ml) extra virgin olive oil (for frying)
 
Directions:
 
Cream the fresh yeast with the hot water (If using dried yeast, sprinkle it into the water with a pinch of the sugar and leave in a warm place for 15 minutes until frothy).

Add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of sugar, the egg, olive oil and wine and blend well together.

Put the flour and salt into a large bowl.

Make a well in the center, add the yeast mixture and beat with a whisk until it is like a pancake batter. If the batter seems too stiff, add a little more wine or water.

Peel, core and slice each apple into 5 rings.

In a deep, heavy-based saucepan, heat the olive oil.

Coat a few apple slices on both sides with the batter, letting the excess drain off.

Fry the slices for 3-4 minutes until golden brown.

Drain on kitchen paper.

Cook the remaining apple slices in the same way.

Put the remaining sugar on a plate.

When the apple slices are cool enough to handle, gently press them into the sugar. Serve warm. Serves 4.
 
That's it!
