When I went out for lunch yesterday, the bartender told me the cook had come up with a new appetizer I may like. Oh yeah, what?
Deep fried pickles!
He knows I like pickles, and he brought me a bowl of them (for free -- I wouldn't have ordered them.) Imagine fried onion ring batter on a pickle chip.
I can't say whether I liked it or not. My mouth couldn't decide. I liked the sweetness of the batter covering, but the pickle was warm which I didn't like. However I liked the taste of the pickle.
He brought me about 10 of them, and I probably ate four. I've read about all sorts of deep fried food, so this really wasn't that strange -- no stranger than tempura.
