The Bottom Line: July 16th is National Corn Fritters Day!
The Full Story:
July 16th is National Corn Fritters Day! If you’ve never had one, a corn fritter is a bite of fried or baked corn batter (in some places, they’re called hush puppies). These savory treats can stand on their own, be served as a side, or be topped with syrup, sugar or jam.
Corn fritters originated in the South, but many other cultures have their own versions of this delicious dish. In Asia, “pakoras” are a popular snack, and are made with vegetables dipped in batter then deep-fried.
To celebrate National Corn Fritters Day, head to your local Southern- style restaurant or put your cooking skills to the test and make them yourself!
