true that Southerners will deep fry just about anything?
chilled jelly beans in beaten egg then roll in crushed cornflakes
until well coated. Dip again and coat again. Then return to fridge
for 30 minutes to set up.
Deep fry in peanut oil or good lard until the coating is nicely
Serve with a sprinkle of powered sugar and the customary warning
that the contents are very HOT!
idea is to get eat them while still warm enough to be soft and
gooey, sort of the consistency of a nice fresh gummy bear with a
crunchy coating, but not hot enough to inflict 3rd-degree tongue
PS: The secret to deep frying jelly beans is to use a basket or you
will lose them in the deep fryer.... adds Cowboy Mark.
you have it folks, proof that Southerners will indeed fry anything.
yet finished testing this in our SoHum Test Kitchen since we've been
busy pickling pig's feet this week. But if you try it anyhow, be
sure to write and let us know how good it is!
as it may be, all this stuff is copyrighted... just so you know.
