Fried Beer

This news article in The Telegraph is worth coming out of blog hibernation to which I have necessarily been obligated due to overwhelming work.

A chef in Texas has created what he claims is the world's first recipe for deep-fried beer.

The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic.

When diners take a bite the hot beer mixes with the dough in what is claimed to be a delicious taste sensation.

His deep-fried beer will be officially unveiled in a fried food competition at the Texas state fair later this month.

Five ravioli-like pieces will sell for $5 (£3) and the Texas Alcoholic Commission has already ruled that people must be aged over 21 to try it.

Mr Zable has so far been deep frying Guinness but said he may switch to a pale ale in future.

Oh, yes! A sign of God's favor.

Sounds heavenly! Maybe one of these days I'll try it out, though it's probably high in cholesterol. :-)
I hope you don't have to stay in "blog hibernation" for long again!

Cathy, this is a great rainy day project. To figure out how to fry these. Great idea for Friday abstention. LOL!
