Carrot Fritters are different. I love apple fritters but these be interesting to make.

Have nice young, tender carrots, clean and scrape them carefully, cutting each one in two lengthwise. Put to boil in salted water. Take up, drain, and cool, making a frying batter as follows. Beat up one egg, sift in one cup of flour, three fourths cup of milk, a pinch of salt, and one tablespoons of melted butter. Mix until smooth and glossy. Allow to stand in cool place for one hour, then add one teaspoon of baking powder. Put in a few pieces of carrots at a time. Drop into hot Crisco and fry for a few minutes. Serve hot.
