Peach Fritters

IMG_1709
I stopped by the orchard this weekend and was able to score some #2 peaches freshly picked. I canned some of them yesterday, and today I decided it was time for peach fritters! Freshly fried and with a splash of powder sugar, there is no better treat! It tastes just like the county fairs I remember from living in Pennsylvania.
