Gentle Readers, as a Southerner, The Practical Cook has always been fond of pickles. Cucumbers are of course traditional, but pickling anything means it lands on holiday tables: okra, beets, olives, etc. Only recently did I become converted to the Fried Pickle. In the Durham, NC, area there are two leading contenders.
For me, I choose Bull City Burger for being slightly more crispy. However, I recognize the Tyler’s appeal for being more pickle-y and very flavorful. All of this left me wondering if anyone fries sweet pickles. I have an obsession with the Korean pickles at Vit Goal in Durham, which are sweet-hot. I can imagine frying would only enhance my experience with them.
Clearly, in spite of my relatively healthy lifestyle, I like to leave room for the culinary equivalent of a salty fat bomb. Are you a fried pickle fan? Where do you get your fried on? Post a comment below!
