Fried Pickles

You can use any kind of pickle you like- chips work best. Heat peanut or fry oil in a heavy stock pot or dutch oven to 350F. Using a zip-top baggie thoroughly coat pickle chips in seasoned flour

Seasoned Flour recipe:
1 cup flour
1tsp of each -- salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and chili powder

Shake off excess and fry small batches in the oil (pickles will float with no bubbles when cooked). Use a slotted spoon to remove cooked pickles. Drain on a paper towel lined plate or sheet pan and keep warm in oven. Thicker pickle chips will cook more slowly, allow time between batches for the oil to rebound.

Serve with your favorite dressing

Blossom Petals:

Ingredients
Medium onion
1½ cups flour
½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar

Preparation
Cut a medium onion in half, peel and place face down on counter. Cut onion into strips at about 1/2” across the onion

Batter: mix flour, cayenne, black and white pepper and sugar. Fill a small bowl with milk or buttermilk. Toss the onion strips in the flour, then the milk and then the flour again. Fry the petals in 1/2” of hot oil in a skillet, or bake in a 400 degree oven until crispy

Creamy Chili Sauce:
Combine 1 pint each mayonnaise and sour cream, ½ cup chili sauce and ½ tsp cayenne pepper. Optionally add ¼ C horseradish for extra kick.
