Fried cucumbers (ai)

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 larges Cucumbers, washed and cut into 1/2 inch slices, cut lengthwise
\N \N Salt and pepper to season
1 cup Flour

Oil or vegetable shortening for frying Spread cucumber slices, cut lengthwise, between paper towels to dry.

Let stand for about an hour, Remove towel and season with salt and pepper. Dip or dust slices and coat both sides lightly. Fry quickly in hot oil until slices are golden brown on each side. Drain on paper toweling and serve at once. This is very similar to the Fried Green Tomato slices and is very tasty. There are so many recipes that are basically the same, but with the something extra added, gives a delightful change, as in Baking Powder biscuits, one added Huckleberries when in season. Sassafras Tea seems to have been a spring tonic for years ago. Another is Elderberry and Apple jelly using a cup of each and proceeding in the usual way you make jellies.
