3 good juicy cooking apples, 3 EGGS, 6 oz. of Allinson fine wheatmeal, 1/2 pint of milk, and sugar to taste. Pare and core the apples, and cut them into rounds 1/4 inch thick; make a batter with the milk, meal, and the EGGS well beaten, adding sugar to taste. Have a frying-pan ready on the fire with boiling oil, vege-butter, or butter, dip the apple slices into the batter and fry the FRITTERS until golden brown; drain them on blotting paper, and keep them hot in the oven until all are done.
