INSTRUCTIONS TO MAKE FRIED APPLE RINGS:
1- The batter :
To make the batter all you need is to mix all the ingredients except apples and oil. Simply use the fork. The batter should have a medium consistency, not too thin and not too thick.
The apple rings :
You can typically obtain approximately six slices from each apple. Once you’ve removed the skin, proceed to slice the apples. To remove the cores, you can either use a small round cookie cutter or, if you have an apple corer, it’s a handy tool for the task!
Deep frying :
Take each apple ring and dip it into the batter. Allow any excess batter to drip off by inserting a fork into the center of the ring before placing it into the hot oil. I prefer using a frying pan or skillet for deep-frying these rings since they are thin, and it minimizes the amount of oil needed.
Cinnamon sugar coating :
Ensure that the apple rings are still warm when you coat them with cinnamon-flavored sugar.
RECIPE FAQ :
Q1: Can I prepare fried apple rings in an air fryer?
- Unfortunately no! Air fryers work like small ovens. They can cook and crisp up food, but they can’t fry battered dishes.
Q2: What type of oil should I use for frying?
- Opt for an oil with a high smoke point, like sunflower or vegetable oil, for frying. It’s important to maintain a consistent frying temperature. Use inexpensive brand because you’ll likely discard it after frying.
Q3: Which apples should I use?
- You can use whatever apples you have available. Just avoid using apples that are too mushy inside.
Q4: How can I prevent the apple rings from getting too soggy after frying?
- To minimize sogginess, make sure the oil is hot enough before frying, and avoid overcrowding the frying pan or deep fryer. Also, using a paper towel to blot excess oil after frying helps maintain crispiness.
Q5: What are some popular dipping sauces for fried apple rings?
- Common dipping options include caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, powdered sugar, or even a simple cinnamon sugar mixture.
Q6: Are there any alternative cooking methods for making apple rings that are less oily?
- Yes, you can bake apple rings in the oven or use an air fryer for a lower-oil alternative. They won’t be as crispy as deep-fried, but they can still be delicious.
To store your delicious apple rings follow these steps:
- Allow the fried apple rings to cool completely at room temperature on a wire rack or paper towels. This helps prevent excess moisture from accumulating inside the storage container.
- When storing, arrange the fried apple rings in a single layer on a plate or baking sheet. Avoid stacking them on top of each other, as this can cause them to become soggy.
- While it’s best to enjoy fried apple rings fresh, you can refrigerate them for short-term storage. They can stay good in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.
- To reheat refrigerated or frozen fried apple rings, use an oven or an air fryer. Avoid using a microwave, as it may result in a loss of their crispiness.
