    This was a first for me... You do them just like fried squash or green tomato and Lord knows that this time of year we need a new idea to get rid of the over abundance. :D

    I used corn meal on these with some salt and pepper and a little cayenne mixed in... Fry them up until golden brown and tear 'em up. Ranch dressing is pretty good for dipping them in.

    Man, I'm about to hurt myself on these things. :D

    I'd have to say, I absolutly never heard of fried cucumbers!
    But heck, it does make sence, (all other things fried) and will have to definatly try that, especially with a garden full of them.
    Thanks for the post Crpdeth! (nice picture BTW)!

    Makes sense and should be very tasty. :)

    We have fried Zucchini and Fried Summer Squash, why not cucumbers, as they are all in the same family of veggies.

    It has been decades since I last had fried cucumbers and I am now getting the urge to have some. Thanks for rekindling a memory.

    I absolutely hate raw cucumber! The smell, and the horrible taste! Years ago my step-mother talked me into trying a fried cucumber. I reluctantly did and loved it. Your spread looks VERY appetizing.

    If it's deep fat fried and rolled in cornmeal, it's gotta be good.

    If your out and about and smell that "smell" and there isnt any cucumbers growing around, best be on the lookout for a copperhead snake! That is the smell they "they give off"...as a defence type of thing. (i reckon)

    Another note...

    I just received a turkey fryer as an early Christmas present. I also received a small recipe book entitled "103 Uses For Your Turkey Fryer". It has a lot of interesting recipes including one for fried ice cream. That'll be one I'll spring on the grandchildren for sure.

    Thanks Beth. I know they can be dangerous. I used it to cook a turkey last weekend and realized that if you follow the directions (and stay sober) the risk is significantly reduced.

    And in addition to following all of the safety precautions I learned that 1) frying turkey is not a group sport, 2) keep the area clear of children and pets and perhaps most importantly 3) keep the area free of drunks. One of the safety precaution is to turn off the fire when inserting or removing the turkey. That way any oil spillage will probably not catch fire. I had one drunk relative shouting, "Don't turn off the fire. We're livin' on the edge out here."

    Uh-huh. You go live on your own edge buddy :eek:

    Beth, I cooked two turkeys last weekend for our holiday party. One was cooked on the rotisserie and the other deep fried. Both were injected with marinade; garlic butter for the rotisserie one and cajun butter for the other. Both turkeys turned out perfectly done and were very moist. However people were climbing all over one another to get to the platter full of the fried turkey. It was a first for me and it was the best turkey I've ever eaten. I even ate the wings the next day which is something that I had never done with turkey. If you ever get the chance to try it you should do so.

    Regarding me having a bite for you...sorry, no can do. It's all gone :rolleyes:
