Introduction: Carnival Chow Down
If you are like us, you love carnival food but hate the long lines and high prices.This instructable will teach you how to have all the deep fried goodies you could ever want and some fresh lemonade to chase it all down. All you will need is two cups, one glass and one plastic, that fit together, metal slotted spoon and/or metal tongs and a fryer with temp gauge. We used an outdoor turkey fryer and candy thermometer. The shopping list includes lemons, potato, cauliflower, broccoli, onion, hot dogs, oreos, eggs, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, beer, vanilla extract and powder sugar.
Step 1: Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
One 16 oz cup of ice
2 tbs sugar
1 cup of water
Wash lemon. Fill your glass with ice. Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice of both sides, add sugar and water. Put on the other cup and shake until well mixed. Garnish with half of the squeezed lemon.
Step 2: Produce Prep
Scrub potato and cut into even pieces in whatever shape and size you prefer and soak in cold water. Slice the onion to make your rings. Cut the broccoli and cauliflower into florets.
Step 3: Mix the Batters
*For all batters, combine ingredients and mix just until blended*
1 1/2 cups cornbread mix
1/3 cup milk
2 cups flour
1 cup beer
1 cup water
salt and pepper
FUNNEL CAKE BATTER
3 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk

Step 4: Deep Fry and Enjoy
Once you have your oil preheated to 350 f, batter your hot dogs in corn bread and put in the fryer until golden brown. Turning regularly.
After the oil has returned to 350 f, clean out any floaties and batter your veggies, minus the potatoes, in beer batter and deep fry until they are golden brown, turning regularly. Salt right away.
After the oil has returned to 350 f, clean out any floaties and deep fry your fries until they are golden brown, turning regularly. Salt right away.
After the oil has returned to 350 f, clean out any floaties. Batter your oreos in funnel cake batter and deep fry until they are golden brown, turning regularly. Let cool briefly before dusting in powder sugar.
