A Fried Pickle-Veggie Appetizer

Updated on June 19, 2013
Source

Hunger is the best pickle. —Benjamin Franklin

Tart, juicy, mouth-watering and scrumptious is the best way to describe my enjoyment of fried pickles. Whenever my hubby decides to make a batch, I begin to drool just thinking about how that first bite will satisfy my craving for spicy foods.

On this day, we had a vegetable bin full of squash and tomato purchased a few days prior and needing to be used. We deliberated on making a batch of fried veggie appetizers using our favorite pickle batter. Could they possibly work deep-fried and coated like the pickle? Why not?

We were delighted with the results, and I am shameless in telling you that I ate more than my share that evening. In spite of this wonderful new creative dish, I still take pleasure in the basic fried pickle on any given day.

Pickle History and Trivia

Pickles are an edible product, such as cucumber, that has been preserved and flavored in a solution of brine or vinegar (source: The Free Online Dictionary). The dill pickle is the most sought and bought type across the country. What family picnic doesn't have a few on hand for munching before the meal?

If it is genuine, it is processed with dill weed which is added during the last stage of fermentation. From my research, I found it interesting that the Kosher dill is not necessarily made under Rabbinical supervision, it simply means it is flavored with a good percentage of garlic. You must read the label to determine if it has been made under a Rabbi's direction.

Did you know that people have been eating pickles since the Mesopotamian era? Cleopatra stated her beauty came from eating pickles. Here are some other interesting facts on these delightful food treats.

  • In the Pacific Islands, banana leaves are used to line foods placed in holes in the ground for pickling. These foods are also used as reserves during storms. The value of the pickle is so highly priced that they are part of the courting process, proving a man is able to provide for his woman. Here's a bit of fascinating trivia, men in Fiji must first show a girl's parents his pickle pits before dating is allowed.
  • In America, pickle factories ferment their pickles in outdoor lidless vats. This may be of sudden concern to readers as the idea of open outdoor containers is invitation for all kinds of interesting added ingredients (Please, frogs stay out and birds do not fly overhead!). However, the reason for this is the sun's direct rays prevent yeast and mold from growing in the brine.
  • Kool-Aid™ pickles have become quite popular in the Delta region of Mississippi. These treats are cut, sliced, and soaked in Kool-Aid™ for over a week and sold for fifty-cents or more at fairs and delicatessens.
  • According to the Department of Agriculture, the average American consumes an estimated 8.5 pounds of pickles annually. I know I eat my good share of this statistic!
  • Lastly, iced-cold pickle juice is credited for the Philadelphia Eagle's triumphant win over the Dallas Cowboys in September, 2000. It seems the players guzzled down vast amounts of it to wane off the intense heat.

      I LOVE fried pickles but haven't found a decent recipe. I am definitely trying yours. I'm sure the squash is good, but I would never think to fry tomatoes. I'm glad I came across this hub. I liked all your facts about pickles, too. I didn't know Kosher dills had a lot of garlic. No wonder they are so delicious. And pickles soaked in Kool-Aid! I've never heard of that. Loved this hub. Many votes. I'm pinning it to my appetizer board! Thanks for the recipe!

      Love doctor, you and I enjoy similar treats: pickles on burgers and sandwiches. Add the fried pickles and you have an extra special treat! I appreciate your visit!

      Suzette, I am sure store bought cannot compare to your grandmother's homemade pickles. I prefer homemade myself, they have a great fresh taste. Thanks for your visit and support.

      Barbara, it is a great appetizer to a dinner party. We also enjoy them at home with bar-b-que. Hope you have a great week.

      Lyric Writer, Thanks for the votes of support. You have me thinking about this recipe idea on sweet pickles. Very interesting concept!

      Ignugent, if your husband loves pickles - then he would love this recipe. My hubby makes them whenever he has a special sport event, and of course I sneak a few! Thank you for coming by here and have a great evening.

      Now, fried pickles do sound good. I looove pickles and I imagine fried they'd be even more delightful. Voting up and awesome.

      Hi Crystal!

      You are so right, fried pickles are extra good. I love them plain also, but the batter adds a great crunchy taste to the experience. Be safe out there. Blessings.

      Hey Crafty,

      After I tried my first one, I was hooked for life. You will have to try them one day - you may find them hard to resist!

      This batter used to coat the pickles sounds quite interesting. It's different from the one we use it which mainly has black gram flour instead of the all purpose flour. And no eggs just the salt and pepper.

      I haven't really tried the fried pickles only fried veggies. Need to try this one.

      Voted up and interesting Dianna.

      Your black gram flour sounds interesting. I prefer a rice flour or whole grain, but this recipe does slightly better with the white flour. Thanks for your feedback and added input.

      Poetryman, it is actually pretty good if you like pickles. I'm not one to eat much fried foods in general either, but this dish is one I find enjoyable. I wish you a most wonderful week.

      We just went on vacation and fried pickles were on the menu one night. I had never heard of them before, and now I see you've written an article about them. It seems that once you hear of something one time, it comes up again. Anyway, interesting article.
