    List of Ingredients

    Chestnut and Fruit Fritters
    Ingredients :

    2 med Apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
    1 cup Vin Santo or other dessert wine
    1/3 cup Granulated sugar
    1/2 cup All-purpose flour
    1/2 cup Chestnut flour
    1 x Egg, separated
    3/4 cup Dry white wine
    1 tbl Unsalted butter, softened
    Vegetable oil for frying
    Confectioners' sugar for dusting the fritters

    Method :
    Place the apple slices in a bowl and sprinkle with the Vin Santo and the granulated sugar. Cover and set aside for 1 hour.
    Mix together both types of flour, the egg yolk, and the white wine.
    Beat the egg white in a separate bowl until fluffy. Fold the egg white gently into the flour mixture. Drain the apples and mix gently into the batter.
    Heat 1/2-inch of vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat.
    Drop a 5-inch round of batter in the skillet, cook until golden brown on one side, flip and cook likewise on the other side. This should take about 3 minutes (1 1/2 minutes per side). Remove, drain, dust with the confectioners' sugar, and serve.
    Yield: 4 as a dessert or snack
