We just got back from the State Fair and ate lots of deep fried food. Well, I guess we still had a taste for it because later that week we made more deep fried food. I'd been meaning to make deep fried pickles for awhile. We ordered them at a restaurant not so long ago and everyone loved them. When I saw Reeni's recipe, I knew we'd be making them right away.
My kids ate them plain but I loved the sauce with them. I'm a huge ketchup and mayo fan though. Just to change it up a bit, I used some Cherry Chipotle NOT Ketchup. They have other flavors too but I thought the Cherry Chipotle would be perfect.
I went easy on the beer in case the kids didn't like the taste, I used about 3/4. But you couldn't taste the beer at all so I would recommend putting in all of it. So for this years tailgating party, go ahead and have something deep fried and try these amazing pickles.
