Default Beer-Batter Fried Pickles

Lifted from a recent issue of Southern Living

Beer-Batter Fried Pickles

Makes 8 to 10 servings
Prep: 15 min.
Fry: 4 min. per batch

2. Whisk together egg and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; add 1-1/2 cups flour and whisk until smooth.
3. Pour vegetable oil to a depth of 1-1/2 inches into a large heavy skillet or Dutch oven; heat over medium-high heat to 375 F.

Mm, fried pickles. Almost as good as fried corn on the cob. Just use the same batter recipe and dip in your cooked corn on the cob. Also, try dipping your favorite stuffed green olives in the batter and frying them up.
Going to have to call mom tonight, now. She used to make these for me as a kid. Good ol southern cookin. Gonna send ya to an early grave, but you'll be smiling all the way.

Try using pickle spears instead of the slices. The spears hold up much better when fried, and you can get that crisp of a pickle, without having a mushy product

I've never had a fried pickle before, but I know that they've got to be awesome. I'm guessing they're best served right away. Do they "keep" well? Can you make them, and then take them to a party?

They don't keep well at all. The moisture inside of a pickle continues to come out after they have come out of the fryer, meaning they pretty much steam their breading meaning either soggy pickles or the batter comes off. But, just out of the fryer and into a dipping sauce and they are fantastic. I actually like them sprinkled with Hops Salt too.

Thanks, I assumed that was the case.
