    DrGaellon's Note:

    The buttermilk softens the gizzards and makes them more tender, but they still retain some of the chewiness and gaminess one expects from offal meats. Adapted from a recipe by Chichi Wang at Serious Eats. http://tinyurl.com/lsx3vw

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a bowl, combine gizzards and onions. Pour over enough buttermilk to cover. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours (24 is better), or up to 2 days.
    2. 2
      Drain gizzards in a colander, allowing any excess buttermilk to drip away. Cut gizzards into 1/2" chunks, working around any gristle or tendons.
    3. 3
      Combine flour with salt, cayenne and seasoning. Beat egg in a small bowl.
    4. 4
      In a pot or deep skillet, heat 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of vegetable oil to 350°F Dip each piece of gizzard in egg, then in flour. Be sure to coat them well or the coating will not be crisp.
    5. 5
      Place coated gizzard pieces into oil and cook 2-3 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Drain on a rack. Serve immediately.
