My grandmother wasn’t scared of fried food; several of my grandmother’s dishes that were my favorites were fried. These apple fritters were the most delicious desserts she could give us in winter. She used to get them ready for mid-afternoon tea or milk in the case of children.
In these 12 years of living in the US, I had never done this family recipe. I loved it when my kids liked one of my old Chilean family recipes, and these apple fritters were not only liked, they loved them, and they even demanded them to be added to the Thanksgiving menu. The food memories get passed on, even living in a different country.Print
