Fried Pickles

Fried Pickles

I have been craving fried pickles, doesn’t that sound like a country band?  Introducing Fried Pickles as they sing their new song,  Fried Chicken and Butter Beans where did I go wrong?!  Sorry, couldn’t help that.   although I have never eaten them before.  When they kept popping up on my computer screen, I took that as a sign I needed to make them.  My first attempt was a huge failure.  

They reminded me of The Andy Griffith Show when Aunt B makes Kerosene Cucumbers!  (remember that one?)  Yep, they were that bad.  Hubby told me he hoped I hadn’t made a lot of them as he didn’t want to waste food!  LOL  SALTY, does not even begin to describe those little circles of puckering pickles!  I used the seasoned flour I was going to fry pork chops in. BAD idea!  I tried again, this time rinsing the slices…duh? and soaking them in buttermilk.  Much better!  I tried to get hubby to try the second batch but he evidently didn’t hear me tell him I changed the recipe.  I got to eat them all!  I only made a handful, cause you know, I was a little shy to try them again myself.

Fried Pickles 

  • (I didn’t measure ’cause I wasn’t certain I would eat them)
  • plain flour…about 1 cup
  • sugar…about 2 teaspoons
  • ground black pepper or cayenne …1/4 teaspoon maybe
  • buttermilk to cover pickles
  • sliced pickles, or whole and then slice them
  • Grab a handful of pickles.  Rinse, rinse and rinse them some more.  Put in bowl.
  • Cover with buttermilk
  • Add enough oil in skillet to come half way up your pickles. I cooked them this way because I was frying pork chops.  
  • Heat oil.  It is ready when a drop of water pops or a pinch of flour sizzles.
  • Mix flour, sugar and pepper while oil is heating.  I just put it in a bag and shake it. 
  • Once oil is ready, take pickles out of buttermilk, shaking off excess.  
  • Put in bag and shake around to coat with flour.
  • Carefully put in hot oil.  Cook until bottom is brown and turn over.  
  • Done when bottom is brown. 
  • Take out with a slotted spoon and put on a plate that was been covered with paper towels.  
  • Serve with ranch dressing for dipping.

I made a sandwich with the 3 cheese bread I made,  pork and fried pickle.
Good thing I don’t eat like that everyday!
