These things were seriously good AF. I even surprised myself! The great thing is, you can put whatever you like in them. Completely customizable!
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely-ground cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon fine salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup finely chopped scallions (from about 5 medium scallions, white and light green parts only)
Add various chopped vegetables to your liking. (I used green, red and yellow bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and mushrooms)
2 quarts vegetable oil, for frying
Heat oil in a heavy pot or deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Beat together egg, milk, and melted shortening; stir into flour mixture. Drop fritter batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil, and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels.

add peaches and cook a few minutes, then add sugar, vinegar, salt and ground spiceand garlic.
