I had heard all about these at fairs and as appetizers in restaurants, so I thought I would look up how to make them. I mixed a few recipes together, and this is what I got. We had never had them before, and we really liked them, so we hope you do too! Really easy, and you don't need any special fryer to do it! For a variation, 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning can be substituted for the salt and pepper in the flour mixture. NOTE: If you use whole pickles, you'll need a 32 oz. jar. If the pickles are pre-sliced, you'll only need a 24 oz. jar (the ingredient listing didn't want to cooperate with me on that one).
