 Core and peel the apples and cut each into 4 thick slices. Put them 
 in a
 shallow dish with the sugar and brandy, rum, or liqueur, and turn 
 them so
 that they are well coated. Leave for at least 1 hour, turning the 
 over occasionally so that they absorb the spirit.
 For the batter, beat the yolks with the oil and salt, then stir in 
 flour and mix well. Now beat in the water gradually and vigorously,
 squashing any lumps. Leave for an hour, then fold in the stiffly 
 beaten egg
 Heat at least 3/4 inch of oil in a large frying pan. Dip the apple 
 in the batter about 5 at a time-making sure that they are well 
 covered with
 batter. Lift each one out carefully and lower into the hot oil. The 
 must be sizzling but not too hot, or the fritters will brown before 
 apple is soft inside. Fry in batches, and turn the slices over to 
 both sides. Lift out with a slotted spatula and drain on paper towels
 before serving. Pass the superfine sugar for everyone to sprinkle on.
 Yield: 4 serving
