  1. Prepare the dredges
  2. Prepare the dredges for the pickles by beating the egg, milk and pinch of cayenne pepper in one dish, and placing the cornstarch, cornmeal, chopped dill, paprika, salt and pepper in another. Mix well.

  3. Dip the pickles
  4. Dredge 36 pickles through the cornstarch mixture, then the egg wash mixture, and then back in the cornstarch mixture again. For best results, use cold pickles.
