i only gave this three stars, because i do not believe sliced pickles should ever be used (they absorb too much oil), and rolling in flour after dipping in such a thin batter may have tasted ok, but it the finished result just LOOKED unappetizing. but it could very easily have five... here is how i turned a 3 star recipe into a 5 star treat. 1. Use pickle SPEARS instead of slices. they stay crisper. 2. Leave out the cornmeal. 3. instead of saving most of the flour to dredge in, dump ALL ingredients into a bowl and wisk to make a smooth, THICK batter. 4. dip pickle spears into batter, drop into hot oil, fry to golden brown. 5. drain on paper toweling. 6. try dipping in thousand island instead of ranch, YUMMY! for the record, i used regular milk instead of buttermilk, i eyeballed the ingredients instead of measuring them, and i increased the hot pepper sauce a bit to compensate for being out of cayenne pepper. i tested this recipe out so i could decide whether or not to bring it a
This crispy and satisfying appetizer is a lower-guilt alternative to deep-fried pickle chips. Using pre-sliced pickle chips is a shortcut that makes this quick to prepare.
These are good Tinita, thank you. But I still prefer my simpler version of this. Equal parts beer and flour and seasonings of choice. Mix and let sit for 10 minutes or so. This creates a tempura like batter. Also, to make it less messy and easier, you can lightly dredge your pickles in cornstarch prior to dipping in batter.
I felt they needed a little more flavor. I loved the crispness of the pickles but it was kind of bland. I didn't finish the batch last night because I wasn't impressed. Today I decided to change it up just a little and they were 5 star. I took the left over wet batter and added a touch of Kentucky Kernel seasoned flour and dipped them in KK as well instead of just AP flour. Next time I'll just use the KK instead of AP flour.
This reciepe really hit the spot. My fiance and I fell in love with fried pickles two years ago and this was my first attempt to make them at home. Great recipe! Even better with Ken's Steakhouse Ranch Dressing!
