When we first moved to NC fried pickles sounded so gross to me but then I tried them!

I've had them at about 4 different places now, with my favorites having a slight spicyness to them.

I've never tried making my own but I would probably try Zatarain's Seasoned Fish Fri on them. I've had them with a breaded coating and a battered coating. I think that I like the breaded coating better.

Here is one recipe for them:

This one sounds good but I would probably use just dill pickles, not the garlic ones:

and one more that sounds good to me:

Have you found a recipe that works for you yet?

Speaking of deep fried foods...have you tried a deep fried Snickers bar? I made some "mini" bars at home the other night. They are good. lol!! We did Snickers, MilkyWays and Twix. We all liked the Twix the best. I def. don't think that I could eat a whole Snicker bar like they sell at the carnivals. That's something that I might eat once a year, if that.

I used a homemade funnel cake batter. I'm not sure, though, that they would keep if making them this way. You would probably have to eat them right away.

I just made some last weekend and they turned out great. I used a packaged mix for batter for onion rings. One suggestion I would make is to make 1/2 the box (which is good for a large jar of Claussen pickles) and use the other 1/2 of the mix to dredge the pickles in before you put them in the batter. It would help the batter to stick to the pickles more easily.

Have fun!

Ok you have raised my curosity. How do you do fried snickers bars? I love fried pickles but never made them myself. My boys love them too. I guess I need to learn how to make them.

motherof2,
I watched FN 1 day and they had a program on there about fried candy bars so I emailed the show and asked them more about it. The only thinbg u do is make up a fast batter and dip ur fav candy bar in it, fry it, and there u have it!! NY is FAMOUS 4 these things and the last time I was there they sold for 4.50 eachand that was a regular size candy bar!!! VERY VERY yummy but also hard 2 eat a whole 1 since they r so sweet!

I made up a simple funnel cake batter to dip them in. I used the mini bars, froze them first, then rolled them into flour and then dipped them into the batter and directly into the oil. They only take about 30 seconds on each side. Make sure to drain them on paper towels right out of the oil. You could stick tootpicks in them or popsicle sticks into them for easier handling.

I agree that a big bar would be way too much at one time to eat. We did snickers, milky way and Twix. I didn't have any problems with the batter or the insides at all. We liked the Twix the best.

They sell the snicker bars around here at carnivals for $3.50. To me, I would have to really want to eat one to pay that price for it.

After all of this, this isn't something that I could eat a lot of. Just a couple little ones were enough for me for a while.

Have you tried fried cheesecake bites? We had them in a restaurant a while back. OMG, they were soooo good! There were 5 cheesecake balls served with whipped cream and raspberry sauce. YUMMO!!!

I have not made these, but have tried them at a restaurant in Louisville called Ginney's Diner. They are good! Here is a recipe that sounds like it will be close to what they use; I have not made this recipe myself.

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup ice water
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
4 cups drained dill pickle slices or equivalent amount of medium to large pickles, sliced 1/4-inch thick
vegetable oil for frying


1.In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center. All at once, add the water, egg yolk, and pickle juice. Stir the mixture with a wire whisk to make a smooth batter. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

2.In a deep fryer or large saucepan, heat at least 2 inches of oil to 375 F. In batches, dip pickle slices in the batter, lightly and evenly coating them. Without crowding, place coated slices in the hot oil. Fry until golden and crisp, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.


This recipe is from Pickle Packers International, Inc.
