This recipe uh works best with butter milk because I don't have any butter milk .
So I'm gonna make my own .
When you make your own buttermilk , you need to take a tablespoon of vinegar , but I'm not gonna use vinegar .
I'm gonna use hot sauce .
Any old hot sauce that you like .
And because hot sauces mainly vinegar and , and chilies , then I'm going to , um , take that one tablespoon and I'm gonna bring this up to one cup .
So this will make one cup of buttermilk .
You need to stir it and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes .
Minimum five minutes .
What will happen is it will thicken up if you want to speed that up , you can put it in the microwave for like 15 seconds .
But , um , anyway , it'll thicken up .
This is my favorite brand of pickles .
I think there's other brands that are kind of like fresh pickles .
They're really crisp and good and I'm sure any of them will perform just what just great .
But this is kind of a USA national brand that I really , really like .
So anyway , you wanna take a bunch of pickles ?
These are already cut in half for you .
I'm gonna cut them again .
You can use whole pickles , you can get pickles that are already quartered .
And anyway , ok , here I have , uh , some paper towel and I'm gonna take my pickles and put them on the paper towel .
I'm not gonna squish or squeeze the pickles or anything like that .
Then I'm gonna take him , I'm gonna roll them up in the paper towel because I want to get the moisture that's on the surface of them off .
I don't want them to be too wet .
What I have done is I've taken the pickle slices , I've taken them and put them into the buttermilk like mixture and put them into just plain old cornmeal , then taken them and put them back into the buttermilk , put them back into the corn meal and double dipped them and put them on a plate .
They're ready to fry .
So my oil is hot .
It's around 375 or higher temperature .
You wanna try these ?
Here they are , they're drying away and they're done .
They're floating to the top .
They are like scrumptious .
