I made the fried dill pickles tonight. Oh. My. God. Mouthgasm.

I'm posting the recipe for the batter below the cut, so if you want to try them, you can. I did tweak it a bit. The pickles that I had on Sunday had a bit of a bite to them, so I added a few shakes of hot sauce and some black pepper to the batter. I also added more than 2 tablespoons of pickle juice and just decreased the water. But otherwise, it's pretty much right on! I swear, they taste just like the ones I got at the festival the other day and the texture was absolutely perfect...light and crispy.

Oh, for the record, I used Claussen hamburger chips. Claussens are my absolute favorite pickle, but you could use whatever brand you like. And dill spears are good to fry, as well. I dipped mine in ranch dressing, but I've had them at another restaurant with a horseradish dijon, which was also excellent. I need to figure out how to make that.
