Fried Pickles with Ranch Dipping Sauce Recipe

Homemade Fried Pickles Recipe

 I found my love for fried pickles while on at an Apple Festival. I was waiting in the food line, counting my cash for the hundredth time, and trying to figure out how to get all six of us something everyone could agree on. As usual, I was also having a conversation with complete strangers. They all convinced me to try fried pickles with ranch dipping sauce.

Let me tell you, I have not been able to forget about those delicious fried pickles since!

I’ve made my own version of the fried pickles from the apple festival a couple of times. Each time that I make these pickles, the kids gather around like vultures. Everyone has their opinions on whether or not the spears, or chips are better. The chips are a little easier to handle. They are bite-sized.  The spears are super juicy and might require a knife and fork to make them bite-sized. Both are delicious. 

How do you reheat leftover fried pickles?

The best way to reheat fried pickles is in the oven. Set your temperature to 350 degrees and heat them for about 10-15 minutes or until they are heated through.

How do I reheat them and make them crispy again?

You can take them out of the oven after about 5 minutes and transfer them to a frying pan with hot oil. Fry them a few seconds on each side to crisp them up again.
