I have learned something from this....I am a better cook than I thought. We eat far less salt with home made meals and the food has better flavor, fills us up in a better way and delivers energy to work longer.
However "Pickle Me This"...have you ever had deep fried Dill Pickles?
I have seen them, batter covered, greasy looking and rather soggy spears...not at all appetizing to me! We are trying to get to know the local business's and we decided to eat at one in Cub Run itself.
Nana And Papaw's. An unassuming little place with everything you could want in a little old building in a tiny town!
We still have to find out what Salvage is...is it separate or does it mean used DVD movies?
This is pretty obvious!
But now on to the report.
The menu is full of basic choices but it has appetizers with Deep Fried Dill Pickles and Mozzarella Sticks in the selection.
A very nice young woman waited on us and we asked about the deep fried dill pickles. She said they were fabulous and she was not just saying that! They are one of her favorite things and she tries them wherever she goes and these really were the best ever!
A Cheeseburger with a side of the Deep Fried Dill Pickles...simply outstanding!
We tried them and it was a revelation! For one they were not spears but thin slices of dill pickle. Homemade Dill pickle with a sharp bite that only good dills have! The batter was light, almost like a tempura, with great crispness to it! I was astonished at them! Gourmet quality in a small town! You could tell they treated their deep fryer with care, there were no odd bits or strange flavors from a deep fryer that does everything! You could dip your dills in a ranch dressing but I have to admit I preferred them plain....they are excellent with Ranch to but I think I am a purist!
The following Saturday we went back and I had the dills with a cheeseburger. Simple but so good and the Tomato slice came from a real garden variety and was so much better than the cardboard tomatoes at commercial chains. The onion slices that were on the burger and came with Ralph's Pinto bean were awesome, just the right sweetness with a hint of heat and oh so fresh and crisp!
If you ever get to Cub Run.....don't hesitate to stop at this little place and make sure you have the Deep fried Dill pickles...if nothing else! They are a food revelation to this skeptic!
