FOOD HOLIDAY & RECIPE: National Corn Fritter Day
July 16th is National Corn Fritter Day. What better reason to pick up some fresh corn and make corn fritters as a side or a first course? (When corn isn’t in season, use canned or frozen kernels, drained.)
December 2nd is National Fritters Day: Fry up whatever you’d like.
If you’d like to try pumpkin fritters, here’s a recipe.
