Grandmother Mary's Lenten Drop-Crullers
The time came today..........
for Grandma Cook's tasty oil-boiled
who was fed them and then made these
before she came to Waukesha,
took batter and utensils
for just the two of us
in a small pan - (two cups of oil only)
some might accompany her to the Coquillards and then to the church cabinet meeting tonight
but otherwise they will be consumed
at the raccoon headquarters
Since the dough-balls are dropped in the boiling oil at just the right temperature, they take on
The one held daintily in the top photo resembles
a duck. I ate it in two bites. but not until I photographed
it so it can live forever.
(Above is Denise's mother Jean Means, who was the daughter of Grandmother Mary Cook. The heritage lives through her.)
Happy Fasnacht Day!
