This is a great recipe for us---we have two of the ingredients all the time (when in season), the orange juice and orange zest as we have two orange trees in our back yard.

I had cauliflower fritters yesterday. My mom makes them with beer, of course they are pan fried and just delish!

My mom used to make delicious apple fritters and made really good potato pancakes out of leftover mashed taters.
