Redd’s Beer Batter Apple Rings

 

1 ¼ cups  flour

½ teaspoon  cinnamon

12 oz  Redd’s Apple Ale, 1 bottle

3 red apples

¼ cup  powdered sugar

oil, for frying, can be vegetable, canola, or peanut

 

Preparation

Heat oil in a large pot so it’s at least 4 inches deep. If you have a thermometer, be sure the oil reaches at least 360ºF for frying.

In a bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, and Redd’s Apple Ale until smooth.

Slice off the top and bottom of the apples, and slice each apple into ½-inch (1 cm) thick rounds.

With a teaspoon or large piping tip, cut out a circle in the center of the apple ring to make it look like a donut.

With a paper towel, pat down the apple slices.

Dip the apple slices in the batter.

Fry them two to three at a time. Flip each apple slice once during frying and fry until both sides are golden brown.

Carefully remove from the oil and place onto paper towels or a drying rack.

Cool, then sprinkle with powdered sugar.
