  • When the oil is at temperature use a fork to pick up a slice. Put it into the cornstarch and coat. Tap off the excess cornstarch and dip into the buttermilk a couple times. Then coat it the flour mixture.
  • Add to the oild and repeat until you have several slices cooking.
  • Occasionally flip to brown evenly on both sides.
