Fried Apple Rings with Powdered Sugar

So, it’s warmer here in New Hampshire than it normally is. There’s been no hard freeze. So I still have apples on trees that are usable. Therefore, the apple apocalypse continues. Since I am drowning in apples, guess what? I decided to incorporate apples into comfort food month. Fried food is also in the pantheon of my comfort food personal universe. So what else could I do, but try to fry some apples?

I added some pie spices to the batter to make the batter less like an onion ring, and dusted them with powdered sugar, because it’s reminiscent of another comfort food, fried dough (still haven’t managed a safe recipe that’s edible). I use a cast iron wok to fry them because it uses less oil.  If you make a big batch and have leftovers, they warmed up well in the oven at 350°F for about 20 minutes after being in the fridge overnight, so I imagine they would freeze well also.
