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!
