Apple Fritters

I tried these last week and they were very tasty, especially just after they came out of the fryer and were dipped in sugar. The only change I made was dipping the fritters in regular sugar with a bit of cinnamon. Thanks for a tasty recipe! Regards, Cookin' Dad

P.S. The orange juice and orange rind added a nice, unique touch.
