 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6      large         large apples
      1/2  cup           all-purpose flour
      1/2  teaspoon      cinnamon
      1/8  teaspoon      nutmeg
    2      tablespoons   sugar
                         fresh lemon juice
    1                    egg -- separated
      1/2  cup           milk
                         powdered sugar -- sifted
 
      Peel and core apples. Slice crosswise into 1/2 rings, dropping slices
 into water acidulated with lemon juice as they are sliced.
      Sift flour with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. Beat egg yolk with milk. Add
 egg mixture to dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Beat egg white until
 stiff peaks form. Fold egg white into batter.
      Drain apple rings and pat dry on tea towel. Heat oil or shortening to 375
 degrees. Dip apple rings in batter, coating both sides. Drop rings onto hot
 oil, five or six at a time (one layer, not overcrowded). Fry until golden
 brown, turning once, about five minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.
      Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
