Any apples will do, but I prefer tart green or cooking apples. The sparkling cider adds a wonderful edge while the green cardamom pairs wonderfully and adds some underlying warmth. If you would like more original recipes of mine please consider following: [https://www.leviathanfood.com/subscribe](https://www.leviathanfood.com/subscribe) **Ingredients:** * 300g apples * 200g plain flour * 100ml sparkling cider * 10 cardamom pods * 2 tsp. baking powder * 1 tsp. cinnamon * 1 heaped tbsp. brown sugar * 1 egg * fresh nutmeg * 30g white sugar * 50ml melted butter * ½ tsp. salt * oil for frying * icing sugar **Method:** 1. Crush the cardamom pods in a pestle and mortar to remove the seeds. Discard the outer shell. Grind the spice up to a fine dust. If you can only find pre-ground cardamom then use about one tsp. of it in this recipe. Peel the apples and slice them up into small chunks between ½ and ¼ of an inch big. Heat some butter in a pan on medium high heat until it just begins to toast and brown slightly and add the apples. After about two minutes add the cardamom followed by the cinnamon and brown sugar. Grate a bit of fresh nutmeg over the mixture and stir it around. You do not want to overcook your apples, just take the edge off that raw bite. Turn the heat off and set them aside to cool. 2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add the sugar and salt. When the apple mixture has cooled add it in along with the beaten egg, melted butter and sparkling apple cider. Stir the batter well to combine. If the mix is too wet, add a touch more flour. If it’s too dry add a small bit of cider. 3. Heat a few inches of vegetable or canola oil in a pan. Test a small dollop of batter. If it sizzles and cooks straight away the oil is hot enough. Scoop the batter up with a large tbsp.and use another one to drop it gently into the oil. Irregular shapes and edges are part of the fun. Do 4 – 5 fritters at a time and make sure the oil doesn’t cool too much, this can cause sogginess and oiliness. Cook for a few minutes until golden brown before turning and doing the same on the other side. Take them out of the oil and allow the excess to drip off on a wire rack or soak on some kitchen paper. 4. You can serve your fritters simply dusted with sugar or cinnamon, or both, while a simple glaze can be made by sifting icing sugar and mixing with a drop of the cider. Aim for a pourable viscosity and drizzle it over the top or dunk the fritters in for an even coating. If opting for the glaze, allow the fritters to cool for a few minutes first.
