  1. This is a good basic fritter batter. Any fresh herbs could be added for more flavour. I used chives, thyme, tarragon and oregano; because that is what I had on hand. For meal size fritters 10 -12 would be the most you could get from the amount of batter. They were very nice and I will make them again when I have left over corned beef. I think they would freeze well too.
