Black Forest Farmer’s market delicata squash and apple fritters.


  • 1 Delicata Squash, Peeled, Seeded and Shredded
  • 2 Apples (Gala, Honeycrisp), Cored and Shredded
  • 8 oz Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Feta
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour (or Gluten-Free Flour)
  • 2 tbsp Pear & Beet Shrub or Apple Cider Vinegar
Caramelized Onion & Apple Topping
  • 2 Onions
  • 2 tsp Canola Oil
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 Apple, Julienned
  • 1 tbsp Pear & Beet Shrub or Apple Cider Vinegar
Cheddar Crisps
  • 1 cup White Cheddar Cheese, Shredded


Make the onions
  1. Heat a large cast iron pan to medium-high heat, add the oil, then the onions and salt. Cook on medium-high for about 2 minutes then lower the heat to low and cook for 30-45 minutes until the onions have cooked down and caramelized.
Make the fritters
  1. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients for the fritters, squash, apples, cheddar cheese, eggs, feta, salt, pepper and vinegar.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Using a tablespoon, scoop your fritter mixture and then place into the hot skillet. With a spatula press the fritter batter to flatten slightly so it cooks evenly. Cook for 3 minutes on one side and then flip and cook for an additional two minutes. Continue this with the remaining batter.
  3. In a small bowl combine the caramelized onions, julienned apples and vinegar.
Make the cheddar crisps
  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F. To make the cheddar crisps, line a baking sheet tray with parchment paper or a baking silpat. Place teaspoon size portions of shredded cheddar onto the tray, spacing one inch in between each pile of cheese. Bake for 7 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes to set.


To Serve

  1. Top each fritter with 1 tablespoon of the onion and apple mixture. Enjoy hot!
