Fried Jelly Beans

From the SoHum Test Kitchen




Is it true that Southerners will deep fry just about anything?

Dip 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 browned.

Serve with a sprinkle of powered sugar and the customary warning that the contents are very HOT!

The 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 burns.

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.


And there you have it folks, proof that Southerners will indeed fry anything.

We've not 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!


Foolish as it may be, all this stuff is copyrighted... just so you know.
