I like to dip my deep-fried dill pickle chips in Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, whereas the hubby prefers ketchup. To each his own, I say.

Deep-Fried Dill Pickle Chips

The flavor of a deep-fried dill pickle chips is somewhat like fried green tomatoes. Both are salty, tangy, and crunchy. Dipped in your choice of dressing, either snack is delicious. I like to dip mine in Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, whereas the hubby prefers ketchup. To each his own, I say.

Homemade Pickles

You can make your own pickle chips by slicing your cucumbers crossways and putting Mrs. Wages Dill Pickle brine on them in a jar. A couple of days later, you can use your own pickles to make deep-fried pickles.

The hubby cross-cut our pickles with a ripple cutter. It was time-consuming, but they seem to be firmer. He cut them approximately 3/8 inch thick. He placed the cut cucumber slices in the jars, and I mixed up the brine mix and poured it into the jars and sealed them using a water bath canner for 10 minutes.

I can visualize the pickle shelf in our Walmart store, and there is probably a thick-cut pickle waiting for you to deep fry if you would rather purchase store-bought pickle chips.

This is the coating I use with deep-fried foods, turkey in a bag, lamb chops, and pork chops. Versatile. Good flavor.

      Kona Girl, Fryin Magic is correct, and Mrs. Wages Dill Pickle mix... You can use the big cucumbers they sell in the produce section...

      I absolutely love deep fried dill pickles! I had them down south and have never gotten over how habit-forming they are. I have been jonesing for them ever since. Ate at a place in Arizona a few years later that had the pickles on the menu. Ordered immediately. Regretfully they were horrid. Nothing like the ones down south.

      I am so grateful for this recipe. Perhaps now I can have the sorely missed pickles. Thank you so much!

      I had never heard of the Fry Magic flour before. Googled it and came up with Frying Magic. Are they the same? This may be the secret ingredient to those delicious southern fried pickles.
