We used to live near Sharptown, MD. Every year the firemen held their annual carnival. It was famous all over the area. Everyone knew what you were referring to when you mentioned the Sharptown Fireman's Carnival. Equally famous were their oyster fritters. We used to eat them between two pieces of white bread. This recipe was cut down from their original recipe that used a gallon of oysters and made 25-27 fritters.
5.3 cups oysters
1 Tbsp pepper
1 Tbsp salt
1 1/3 Tbsp baking powder
2 - 2 1/3 cups flour
(4-5 oysters per fritter for a good sandwich)
Mix the batter and add the oysters. Scoop into hot fat and fry till nice and golden.
Till next time............
