A friend's husband, who's a chef, came up with these light and fluffy fritters accompanied perfectly by a sweet-tart jam. I would never ask a chef to divulge his secrets, so I created my own version. I serve them with soups and barbecued chicken or pork. —Kim Cupo Albany, Georgia

"These were a nice side dish with our barbecued ribs. I don't fry much at all anymore,so this was really different."
