Today I used my new deep fryer for the first time. I'm by no means a health-freak, but I usually draw the line at deep frying. If for no other reason than it makes the whole house smell of oil! However I was making haggis fritters and you really do need to deep fry them, so away I went. As it was my first time I have no tips to share, apart from the food just out of the fryer is extremely hot (I'm quite sure you already knew that - I apparently didn't!). It takes longer than I would have thought, and doesn't burn as easily as in a pot. The result? Yummy, greasy, Scottish food!
