National Fritters Day

National Fritters Day

When : Always December 2

Today is National Fritters Day, Aren't we all lucky that this this special day has finally arrived!?

Before you can begin to celebrate this very important day, you need to know what a "fritter" is. Many people do not know, making it all the more fun to eat your first fritter today. A fritter is a fried cake or dough with fruit or meats inside.

Whatever you do, do not fritter this day away without eating at least one fritter.

Happy National Fritters Day!

Origin of National Fritters Day:
Despite our diligent efforts, we have yet to find the critter who created fritters, or Fritters Day. Nor, did we find factual information about this day.

There was some reference to this as a "National Day". However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.

    Fritters are fried batter English pancake style.
We make them with apple slices coated with batter and deep fried. We also make Fish fritters.
Thin slices from a large old potato. Take two slices of potato and make a sandwich using flaked cooked fish usually haddock or crab.
Dip them in batter and deep fry. We use English pancake batter which is not like sweet American cake-like batter. This batter has no sugar and often has salt and pepper and sometimes Guinness. stout in the recipe.
Pat in Maine, originally from Yorkshire and the Yorkshire pudding batter is the same as English pancake batter and we use it when we make fritters too. emoticon I just frittered 5 minutes away verifying this from The Oxford English Dictionary . Pat

    I like fuite fritters, but have not had one for many years.... Way too sweet and too much sugar...... But even if I could, my day is almost over and it is too late to have one anyway......

Hope everyone had a great day!
