The Hanukkah tradition of frying in oil is considered the culinary equivalent of lighting a menorah. A deep-fat thermometer is an essential tool for deep-frying; check that your oil returns to 375 degrees F between batches; this prevents the food from absorbing it.

Ingredients

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Stir together flour, granulated sugar, and salt, then add beer, and whisk to combine. Heat oil in a 5-quart heavy pot until the thermometer registers 375 degrees F.

Dip apple slices in batter, shaking off excess, and fry, about 8 at a time, until golden, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer fritters with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Serve warm, dusted with confectioners' sugar.
