Ingredients

BEER BATTER:

Directions

Have fritter batter, combined with orange rind ready. Cut the bananas into 1-inch pieces. In a bowl combine rum and sugar, stir in bananas, and let macerate for 30 minutes. In the deep fryer heat enough shortening to measure 3 inches deep, at 375 degrees. In a bowl dredge the banana pieces in flour, shaking off the excess. Working in batches, dip the bananas in the batter, let the excess drip off, and fry them in the shortening, turning them, for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden. Remove fritters with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Drizzle with glaze if desired.;

BEER BATTER:
