MAY DAY FRITTER
May Day fritters are Finnish sweet and crisp deep-fried pastries served traditionally during the May Day celebration.
Similarly to funnel cakes, the May Day fritters are made of a thin batter drizzled slowly in thin stream into a pan of hot oil, to form an irregularly shaped sphere.
When the fritter is browned
on both sides, it is drained on paper towels and dusted generously with icing sugar.
May Day fritters are sold in Finnish stores and bakeries or made at home around the May Day.
They are traditionally enjoyed with non-alcoholic mead.
