Tempura Apples

These are so good and very easy to make. Our dear friend Griff came up with this recipe. We hope you like it as much as we do.

Tempura Apples
2 apples (your choice)
1 cup Tempura Batter
¾ cup ice water
1 teaspoon cinnamon, reserve ¾ teaspoon
¼ cup confectioner sugar
¼ granulated sugar
¼ dark brown sugar

Heat oil 350 degrees. Core and slice each apple into 12 slices. Mix water, tempura batter and ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon together. Generously coat apple slices with tempura batter. Fry apples until golden brown on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel. Mix the 3 sugars and reserved cinnamon. Toss apples in sugar mixture and serve immediately.
