Homemade Pickle Recipe: goodness of the Deep South in your kitchen

If you’ve ever tasted those fried pickles at the Puckett’s Boat House, you know it’s a total explosion of “South in your Mouth.” And if you’re nice (we’ll take your word for it), we’ll tell you our secret……

The reason they are so good is because our pickles are made-from-scratch via a homemade recipe. With a lot of taste testing and the addition of a spicy spin, we think we got the perfect pickle (which is fun to say 10 times fast).

That Cajun kick you’re tastin’ comes from a perfectly concocted mix of sugar, vinegar, horseradish, and cayenne. And since we love our customers and want them to be happy all the time (not just when they are visiting) we have decided to graciously share this recipe that is very near and dear to our hearts–and stomachs.

So make ’em and put them on a burger (June’s Burger of the Month is coming soon, so stay tuned), eat them out of the jar, or better yet fry them up and dip them in our BBQ sauce. Either way, we hope they bring all the goodness of the Deep South to your kitchen.
