Summer Recipe Series: Fried Pickles
As many of you know, here in the southern part of the country, we are notorious for deep frying many items that normally wouldn't be fried. And while some of these fried creations feel quite unnecessary, (such as fried Oreos, cupcakes, and Twinkies- I think we can all agree that these don't need any more fat and calories added to them) sometimes frying an unusual item can bring about a very tasty dynamic. This is the case with fried dill pickles, where the buttermilk based breading locks in and tempers the tart acids from the pickle and really creates a unique flavor, especially when served with a spicy dipping sauce. You can find fried pickles on many local menus, but here is a recipe if you want to try them for yourself!
