hello!

my father just shipped me a case of very large sort of spicy pickles. he knows i like spicy things and i do like pickles, however, other than eating them straight, i dont know what to do with them!!! does anyone have any recipes that use a lot of pickles?

i have no idea why my father sent them and its even more insane as he knows i CAN pickles and have a bunch in the basement!!!

any suggestions are appreciated.

DEEP FRIED PICKLE CHIP PARTY!



These are insanely good. People can't stop eating them.



Fried Dill Pickle Chips



8 dill pickles

1 / 2 cup flour

1 / 4 cup beer

1 tbsp. Paprika

1/4 tbsp. Cayenne pepper

1 tbsp. Black pepper

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. garlic salt

3 dashes Tabasco sauce

oil for deep frying



Cut the dill pickles in slices as thick as a silver dollar. Mix together the remaining ingredients to form the batter. Dip the pickles in the batter and quickly fry in the hot oil (375F) until pickles float to the top, about 4 minutes.

They will, of course, last forever so I don't know that there's too much pressure to do something with them. Just enjoy them at your leisure!

I was doing my own thing quietly and YOU are the one who created this post trying to make a big deal out of it. Keep flaming the fire. That must be what you want.

If you are in the giving spirit, you could donate a few jars to charity. But then again, would that be cruel? A hungry person eating away nicely and then takes a bite of a hot & spicy pickle. I can imagine the scrambling for a glass of water right now...



I can think of more suggestions, but they are even less appropriate. I give up now.



LMAO! i have thought of less appropriate things as well!

I have heard of fried pickles but have never tried it. Yeah, sounds like good bar food.



Cut some up and put in chickpea salad. Yum.
