I love pickles! I always have. It’s funny to me because my ex and current significant other both hate them with a passion. If I eat them, no kisses for me. There’s something about the smell, flavor, and texture that makes them gag. For me, I love all of that stuff, but only the dills. That bread and butter stuff can go away. There’s something about that sharp vinegar that is so good and refreshing.
Even with my love of pickles, I have never been brave enough to try the fried pickles anywhere. I feel like if I do try them, then I want to be in The South… or I could just make these fried pickles at home! Because this sounds GOOD!
There’s a far smaller risk when cooking new things at home. You usually aren’t spending as much money, and there’s no risk of insulting someone by not eating the food item because you just don’t like it. I think my fried pickles debut is going to be this recipe, and it’ll be at home. This is a copycat recipe from Hooters, and I know people ADORE their fried pickles. So, there’s not much to lose, huh?
