ENVY™ Apple & Bacon Corn Fritters with a Habanero Honey Glaze
(Makes about 10 corn fritters)
For the fritters:
6 slices bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
2 cups ENVY™ apples, small diced
3⁄4 cup all purpose flour
1⁄2 cup cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp kosher salt
3⁄4 cup whole milk
1 egg, whisked
For the honey glaze:
1⁄4 cup honey
1 habanero, seeds and stem removed, cut in half
A slotted spoon
1 large container canola oil
Heat a medium sized pot of canola oil to 350 degrees.
Heat your oven to 250 degrees to keep batches of fritters warm.
In a small bowl, microwave honey and habanero for 15 seconds.
Allow to steep while frying off fritters.
Stir together all ingredients for fritters until well combined and there are no clumps
Using a large spoon, drop a dollop of batter into the oil and allow to get dark golden brown on both sides.
You can do a tester to make sure the batter is cooked all of the way to the center.
Remove fritter to a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil.
Repeat with rest of batter and keep first batches of fritters warm by placing on a sheet tray in the warm oven.
Once all fritters fried off, drizzle with spicy honey glaze and serve immediately.
Batter can be kept in refrigerator for 1-2 days, but make sure to stir batter well each time.
