Torch Delights

New York City has a seemingly endless array of food available that you simply cannot find anywhere else. Living in this giant metropolis will open your taste buds to many new and exciting experiences.

Still, there are some things that New York just seems to be missing. One of the biggest things we don’t have here is the southern goodness of fried pickles.

This recipe is very simple and doesn’t take long to make. You can make it with either a deep fryer or just a deep pan and some Crisco or vegetable oil. All it requires is getting your hands a little messy.

This unique treat offers a more distinct taste than plain old pizza or a sub sandwich.

By surprising your friends and family with this southern specialty, it will definitely be a memorable meal.

Fried pickles are also a great way to relax and enjoy a little taste of the south when college has you stressed or feeling homesick.
They make great snack food to enjoy with your friends. After all, what food doesn’t taste good when it’s fried?

But watch out: you might even begin to speak with a southern accent while you enjoy this treat.

What You’ll Need:

-A bowl filled with flour

-A bowl filled with milk

-One egg



-Crisco or vegetable oil

-Oval dill pickles

What To Do:

-Mix a little salt and pepper into the bowl of flour.

-Mix an egg into the bowl of milk.

-Dip the pickles into the flour, then the milk, then the flour once more.

-Pour your oil into the fryer or pan and let it heat up.

-Put the breaded pickles in and cook them until they are golden brown.
