Before we get to the fried pickles I want to say congratulations to Anita Jude of Ashland, KY. She is the lucky winner of our reCAP Mason Jar Kit Giveaway. Thanks to folks at reCap Mason Jars for providing the prize. Anita let us know how you plan on using the fermentation kit. I love a good pickle.
While we are on the topic of pickles, I had some pickle chips sitting in the fridge from my Very BBQ Purim, and some matzo meal left over form Passover and I figured why not give fried pickles a try and I was pleasantly surprised. I paired it with a spicy mayo made with my Green Fermented Hot Sauce, for a great crispy snack. It also makes a great addition to your new cook out, as an appetizer for you next casual dinner party, or a great hors d’oeuvre at a cocktail hour. It is also vegetarian friendly, and for gluten free version you can substitute the matzo meal for corn meal.
A great crispy treat.

Lightly dust the pickle chips with flour with flour, making sure to shake off any excess.
Dip the pickle chips in the beaten egg.
Coat the pickle chips in the matzo meal.
Add about an inch of oil to heavy frying pan and put over medium heat. If you have a cast iron skillet this is a good time to use it. Fry on each side until golden brown.
