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.  ~wink~   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.  ~smile~  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.  ~smile~  <3 and hugs!

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!  <3 and hugs!
