“Pear fritters are SOOO good with ham! Really with any meat where a little sweetness is a good thing. This would be good with sausages in the morning, as well! Mmmmmm...”

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the pears until caramelized; set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper; form a well in the center. In a small, separate bowl beat the egg with the milk and pour into the dry ingredients; mix well.
  3. Gently fold pears into the batter.
  4. Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Drop batter by rounded spoonfuls into hot oil, and fry until golden brown. Drain briefly on paper towels. Serve hot.

I ended up sprinkling a little sugar in with the pears to get them to caramelize while sauteing them. I also added 2tsp sugar and some cinnamon, ground allspice, and a little ground ginger to the batter. This made the fritters into a sweet, fried treat. Turned out great!

My first problem was that the pears did not carmelize during the saute. Perhaps they were too ripe or I used the wrong type of pan-I used a nonstick skillet, but they just got mushy and a lot of juice was released. I had to strain the juice out there was so much. Anyway, I was thinking this would be like apple fritters, then noticed there is no sugar listed in the recipe, so I added some and some cinnamon. When they came out of the fryer, I drained them on paper towels then sprinkled them with sugar. They were really kinda boring. I thought the kids would love them, since I don't normally fry stuff for them, but they each ate one and that was that. I had many left over-not a good sign in my house for a repeat. We won't try this one again.
