Strawberry Almond Fritters
Strawberries
1 cup apricot jam
1 cup toasted almonds, finely chopped
1 cup cracker crumbs
2 eggs, slightly beaten
Wash, hull and dry strawberries on a paper towel. Force apricot jam through coarse strainer. Dip each berry in jam and roll in almonds. When all are coated, dip, two at a time, into egg, and then into crumbs. Chill. Before serving time, heat deep fat to 360 degrees and cook berries until they are golden brown. Serve at once, passing powdered sugar, if desired. These may also be fried in a skillet.
