History

Fried pickles were popularized in the South and are primarily made by deep-frying thin slices of pickle. The first recipe for this appetizer appeared in the Oakland Tribune in 1962. It was labeled “French Fried Pickles” and required sweet pickles and pancake batter as the main ingredients. Later popularization is attributed to Bernell “Fatman” Austin, owner of the Duchess Drive-In. Since 1963, he’s served them once a year at the annual Picklefest in Atkins, AK.
