4. Prepare any of the syrup mixtures below. Then add deep-fried apples and

5. Rub a serving platter generously with peanut oil (to keep the fruit from

in flour to coat.

3. In step 4, add with the apples either 1 tablespoon chopped nutmeats or

b. Bring to a boil, stirring, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water. Then stir
