2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 jar LGP Hot Mama pickles
2 cups buttermilk
Preheat 8 cups of vegetable oil to 350 degrees in a large pot.
Drain pickles in a colander and then place into a bowl with the 2 cups of buttermilk.
Place all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Take about a handful of the pickles out of the buttermilk and dredge into the seasoned flour. Shake off excess flour, and place battered pickles into hot grease. Be careful not to place too many pickles into the hot grease or the pickles won’t fry up crisp.
Fry pickle slices until golden brown. Continue cooking in small batches until done.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce (ours is spicy ranch).
