Deep fried butter? I'm having diarrhea just thinking about it.

The more I think about it, the more I think chocolate-covered bacon is a good idea.

how DOES one serve deep-fried butter? do you have to freeze it first?

This bacon fetishism has gone to far! Every situation doesn't need more bacon.

Why are fried dill pickles on the list? Nothing new there...
Just deliciosity!

I like real butter. But I'm going to eat it as just enough to butter my slice of Cardamom Black Mission Fig Bread made with whole wheat and buttermilk. Or baked into Lemon Apricot Scones or traditional Scottish shortbread cookies. Not deep fried.

I wish I'd thought of getting famous by throwing unconscionable combinations of food together. It seems pretty easy. Let's see...how about onion-cantaloupe salad? And then we'll deep fry it.

/although fire away at the deep fried butter...cause that just sounds like a gross way to die.

claudius: how DOES one serve deep-fried butter? do you have to freeze it first?


This sent me on a Google quest- how TF DO you deep fry butter?

"To make fried butter, the butter itself needs to have an outer coating, or shell, if you will - something that can withstand the bubbling cauldron of the deep fryer.

"I mean, butter by itself does not taste good," Gonzales said. "Nobody just grabs a stick of butter and eats it. That would be gross."

So here's what Gonzales does: He takes 100 percent pure butter, whips it until it is light and fluffy, freezes it, then surrounds it with dough. The butter-laden dough balls are then dropped into the deep fryer.

For purists who just want the unadulterated taste of butter, Gonzales serves up plain-butter versions of his creation. For others who want a little more pizzazz, he offers three additional versions with flavored butters: garlic, grape or cherry."

I'll pass.

That was my thought. The donut burger is at least 5 years old. The egg is something I haven't heard before.

Ok, it is now officially okay to give Obama his internet kill switch. The ultimum in human creativity and intellectual diligence has been observed. nothing more needs to be said. So long and thanks for all the fish.

The Vogons will be along presently to demolish the planet for the new hyper highway. Toodles.

FTA about the fried butter:

"When they say deep-fried butter, you think a butter stick," said Rachel Bibbs.
But that's not what it is. Blake Reas freezes the butter and covers it in cinnamon before cutting it into cubes and frying it in something that's been at the fair for years: funnel cake batter.
He's also added a secret twist he wouldn't disclose to the original Texas recipe.
"It almost comes out tasting like a cinnamon roll," he said.

Subby fails at headline accuracy. These idiots didn't create the donut burger ... that was a minor league baseball gimmick about five years ago. They probably didn't create deep fried butter either.

/was at the fair yesterday
//had a deep fried Twinkie
///delicious, but not gonna do it again
 
2010-08-08 10:42:09 AM  
You know, I thought they'd cut a donut in half to use as the bread, but they just went all out and stuck a full one on both side. How the hell do you fit it in your mouth?

/thought seeing the price behind them makes me want to invent something. Deep Fried Chocolate Tuna Melt anyone?

As someone who has been at the Ohio State Fair for the past week and a half (vendor), I think I have done pretty well with food...

Wouldn't a bullet be a lot cheaper, and faster?

Maybe because I'm diabetic and tend to lay off the sugar, but just looking at those donuts makes me feel a bit queasy, and make my teeth hurt.

My arteries tightened up just reading the headline. Why not just name it the heartstopper so you can't get sued for misleading people.

while chocolate covered bacon is quite tasty and delicious (yes I've had it), this donut and the deep fried butter look scary.. I think I'mma Pass.

Ick Ick Ick. I can't stand the mix of salty and sweet, and that just looks disgusting. So does chocolate covered bacon. Sweet things go with sweet things and salty things go with salty things, and keep the 2 separate, thanks very much.

"Every year we try to come up with something new."
Which is kinda easy.....when the something new has been on the market for years and you take it to someplace that's never seen it. The real name is the Luther Burger, Named after Luther Vandross. They have sold it for years, at the Gateway Grizzlies games. Hell.....Paula Deen made one on her show, 2 years ago, with the egg.
But show up with one, in Podunk, Wis. and you're a freaking culinary genius.
 
2010-08-08 11:03:08 AM  
I give it five years before the only way your stupid fair food makes headlines is if it's bacon flavored dogsh*t deep fat fried in beer batter.

Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherfarker. Pigs sleep and root in shiat. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got sense enough to disregard its own feces.

Yup. Incredibly calorific stuff can be found at the IN St Fair.
Re "deep fried butter", pls read the article, which some did & quoted.

Went to Indiana State fair the other day. The donut burger was ok if you like sweet ans savory together. But the best were the deep fried pickles. They may be pretty ingenius with the fried food but they haven't tasted anything till they try deep fried Coca-Cola now that's unusual and tastes killer. Google it.
 
2010-08-08 11:15:43 AM  
Why is this being treated like it is revolutionary or something. Luther Vandross already invented this, it's called the Luther Burger, and shut the fark up you Indiana morons.
