Time to get my groove on! Nothing gets you back into the swing of things like a good old Food Blog Event! The theme is near and dear to my heart (clogged arteries?).....Fried Food! Compliments of a great blog called, At Our Table. Of course we can't forget that this is a IMBB event, and they are getting ready to launch their new web page on September 1st, stay tuned!
This is a last minute idea, to join in the fun of the blog-event. Why last minute? The husband, is arriving home today, after a month in the UK, he is bringing much 'stuff' from M&S (Tee-shirts, Cheddar) and Tesco's (Demerara sugar, Cumberland sausages, Spicy red peppers), so I need to meet the aircraft as a show of support and provide extra trunk space!
My entry is a Spicy Pineapple Fritter. Doing a little store cupboard spying around, I have a pineapple that is ready to be a little toooo ripe, I also have my beloved red peppers from my trip to the UK. The good news is you chop ingredients up, you make the batter and let it rest for 4 hours! This gives me time to drive out to Le Bourget to fetch 'the Hub' and my British booty! Then last minute combination and fire up some cooking oil.....
Easy recipe, just don't forget to season the batter.
These need to be served cold. These fritters would have really shown if they had a nice chutney accompanimentt. Plus, between you and me, I could have added a little bit more red pepper, the end result needed a bit more heat!
Sometimes, I'm my own worst critic!
