Squeeze as much excess liquid from the shredded apples as you can in a tea towel. (Reserve and enjoy the fresh apple juice!)
Mix everything except the frying oil.
Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add heaping tablespoons of the apple mixture, forming patties and fry until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes per side, before setting aside on paper towels to drain.
