It is the dead of winter in Michigan, even though it seems it just started. Time for a little fun. Time for Deep Fry Fridays! Of course you can choose any day of the week you would like, as long as you try to deep fry. I have wanted a commerical french fry cutter for 11 years and finally I got one for my birthday! Added to that, we received a deep fryer for Christmas, so expect some crispy morsels from our neck of the cold woods.
So, who is in? This will be a hosted, posted event, so if you are deep frying, send me a link to your fry post and I will gather them here to make everyone drool. I think we should try this for one month – January – to beat the post holiday duldrums.
Many of you out there reading this blog also have Celiac and know that we can never plan to eat anything deep fried in a restaurant unless they have a dedicated fryer, which is rare except at fast food joints. This January feature is, in part, to help us get over the lack of crispy deep fried goodies that others can indulge in. So, get creative and swap your ideas right here!
I think we will be starting out with perfecting the fresh cut fry and a few batters. I feel a blooming onion in the future as well as mozzarella balls with marinara sauce. Fish and chips? Tempura? Stay tuned to see what we all come up with!
