Tootsies Oyster Fiddlers

    1/2 pint of Bevans oysters, drained and chopped

    3/4 Cup of flour

    1 egg

    1/4 Cup of corn meal

    1 Tablespoon of sour cream

    1 teaspoon of baking powder

    1/4 Cup of milk

    1/4 teaspoon of celery seed

     1/4 teaspoon of salt

    1/4 teaspoon of paprika


    Sift flour, corn meal, baking powder, salt, paprika, and celery seed. Slightly     beat egg with 1 tablespoon sour cream and add mixture. Stir in milk and     oysters. Drop the fiddlers a few at a time into a deep fat fryer. Fry until     golden brown. Place onto a paper towel to drain with a slotted spoon. Season     with salt. Every fall these fiddlers are served to thousands at the Urbanna     Oyster Festival in Urbanna, Virginia, to prepare them at home is a sure     delight.
