A few weeks ago at the Ballard Seafood Fest, my friend Nicole and I encountered this deep-fried treat, which has absolutely nothing to do with the ocean so I was a little mystified about why it was at a seafood festival. But hey–elephant ears are everywhere and nobody makes a fuss.
I’ve seen all kinds of deep-fried foods, but this was the first time I had even heard of this particular item. It certainly wouldn’t have occurred to me to drop one of these in a Fry Daddy. At first it sounded totally disgusting, and then I was intrigued. Nicole and I agreed to split half of one.
So what did we have?
