.....so ....here goes.....
Apple Fritters
2 cups self rising flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs well beaten

All recipes from a book titled:

Ramona Jones Recipes/The Grandpa Jones Family Dinner Theatre dated 1986

This cookbook has a very nostalgic look to it as every recipe has a handwritten look in the pages. So it is like looking at someones hand written recipe book. There are a few funny little songettes/poems included throughout the book as well.
Softback/spiral bound.
Grandpa Jones and Ramona Jones were well known on the Grande Ole Opry/HeeHaw Shows.
The dinner theatre was closed in the early 90's and the family moved back to Tennessee.(the dinner theatre was located in Arkansas) Grandpa Jones died in the late 1990's.

I found my copy at an estate sale.You might could locate a copy of this book on ebay.Lots of southern recipes...from "bygone" days.-----------------------------------

These are great apple recipes! I have some Gala apples on the kitchen counter, but they are sweet. Which kind do you recommend for tart apples?

I'd suggest a granny smith apple.
