FITTERS FROM EMPORDÀ

 Fritters are round sweet pastries of Arab origin made from dough of flour and water, fried and covered in sugar. Aniseed gives them their typical flavour. They are certified as a “Product of the Empordà”. They are the traditional dessert at festivals, particularly during Carnival and Easter and many homes make them on these dates. They can be found at bakeries and cake shops around Roses.
