A fritter is a 'small cake of batter, sometimes containing corn, fruit, clams, or some other ingredient, fried in deep fat or sautéed.'
Basically, a fritter is some flour, milk, eggs, melted butter and 'whatever else you got on hand'. I've had oyster fritters in Topping, Va made fresh out the water by my Grandmama and Great-Aunt Vashti. I've had corn fritters, apple fritters, banana fritters, squash fritters... the list could go on forever! If you had a little bit of somethin' and a lot of people to feed, you threw it in a fritter batter to stretch what you had. Here's an OLD Corn Fritter recipe:

2 cups chopped corn
1/2 cup sweet milk
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon melted butter
2 eggs
pepper to taste

Mix ingredients well. Drop by small spoonfuls into hot fat and fry until golden brown.
