Ruth McCartney Fried Pickles

"The very first recipe for a fried pickle appeared in a 1962 issue of the Oakland Tribune, calling for sweet pickle slices and pancake mix, which frankly sounds like a recipe for disaster. However, Mrs. Butterworth aside, we're going to give credit to Bernell “Fatman” Austin, who helped popularize the dish when he started serving them in 1963 at his restaurant, the Duchess Drive-In Atkins, Arkansas. Right across the street from The Atkins Pickle Factory. Imagine that!"
