Have a Happy National Corn Fritters Day!

This recipe (flour, baking powder, eggs, and milk) is a basic fritter recipe - you can add any number of ingredients such as crab (which would work great with the Chesapeake Bay Rub, also from Feiny's Fine Foods), diced apples with a little bit of cinnamon and sugar instead of the salt and pepper, etc.
