Fried Pickles

You can use any kind of pickle you like- chips work best.

Heat peanut or fry oil in a heavy stock pot or dutch oven to 350F.

Using a zip-top baggie thoroughly coat pickle chips in seasoned flour

Seasoned Flour recipe:

1 cup flour

1 tsp of each -- salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and chili powder

Shake off excess and fry small batches in the oil (pickles will float with no bubbles when cooked.) Use a slotted spoon to remove cooked pickles. Drain on a paper towel lined plate or sheet pan and keep warm in oven. Thicker pickle chips will cook more slowly, allow time between batches for the oil to rebound. Serve with your favorite dressing.
