I recently purchased a barrel of apples for $3 from the famer down the road.  
I've been experimenting with apple recipes.

The Good Huswifes Jewell by Thomas Dawson (1596 A.D.)
p.23 To Make Fritter Stuffe
Take fine flower, and three or foure eggs, and put into the flower, and a 
peece of Butter, and let them boyle altogether in a dishe or Chafer, and put 
in Suger,  synamon and ginger, and Rosewater: and in the boyling, put in a 
little grated bread to make it big, and then put it into a dishe, and beat 
it well together, and so put it into your moulde, and frye it with clarified 
butter, but your Butter may not be too hotte nor too colde.

"To Make Fritter Stuff
Take fine flour and three or four eggs, and put into the flour, and a piece 
of butter, and let them boil all together in a dish or chaffing pan, and put 
in sugar, cinnamon and ginger, and rosewater; and in the boiling, put in a 
little grated bread to make it big, and then put it into a dish, and beat it 
well together, and so put it into your mold, and fry it with clarified butter, 
but your butter may not be too hot nor too cold."


Combining pits and pieces of all of the above:
12 apples
2 cups corn oil
2 cups flour
2 cups cider
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon each of: nutmeg, ginger, allspice, cloves, and  
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
alternatively, you could skip all the spices listed and just put in 
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice

Pare, core and slice the apples.  Blanch them briefly to make them soft.  
Heat the corn oil in a deep dish frying pan.  Combine flour, cider, eggs, 
sugar, and spices and mix well into a batter.   Dip apple slices in batter to 
coat them and drop them in the hot oil.  When the fritter turns brown on all 
sides, lift it out with tongs and drain on paper towels.  Please be careful 
when working with hot oil, it can cause burns.

I found the slicing and coring to be labor intensive.  I was trying to make 
apple rings.  They fell apart when they were blanched too long.  I want to buy 
one of those apple cutters to see if that speeds up the process.  These were 
divine when eaten hot directly off the paper towels.  They were merely 
delicious when served warm at a shire potluck.  I served them in a slow 
roaster to keep them warm and had homemade maple syrup, honey straight from 
the hive, and powdered sugar available as toppings.  They proved to be popular.
