Jam Zone Roundtable Dish: Fried Non-Meats

SANFRANCISCO, Ca - Two weeks ago the Jamzone brought you an enticing round table discussion about condiments. This week we embark on a fantastic voyage to the land of Fried Non-Meats. Residing in San Francisco, there is a sect of people who only jam non-meats and we will doft our hats every so lightly in their direction when in fact this jam is immersed in simmering oil.

So here we go friends, what fried non-meats really get it going?



Let me say only three words about non-meat fried jams: Jalepeno Poppers. Believe.


Non-Meat Fried Jams:

Fried Mushrooms
Fried Pickles (aka Frickles)
Hush Puppies
Waffle-cut Fries
Fried Twinkies


Savory, non-meat, fried jams:

Sweet potato fries
Jalapeno poppers (seconded)
Fried mushrooms (seconded)
Hush puppies (seconded)
Tempura vegetables
Mozzarella sticks
Fried (non-meat) ravioli

Sweet, non-meat, fried jams:

Fried oatmeal creme pies
Fried twinkies
Fried ring dings
Fried oreos

Has anyone here actually fried ice cream before?


I did once devour a fried Mars bar in Ireland, that shit was insane. Oh and fried zucchini is almost unstoppable. Seasoned fries are amazing as well, maybe add some vegan chili and cheese and really get after it.


I have to second the fried zucchini as perhaps the best fried non-meat, although a Dinosaur BBQ Fried Green Tomato is some sick shit.


FGT's are off the hook, but I think Grape is on it with the Mars bars. I had one of those jams over in Scotland and it blew my mind. I haven't yet tried oatmeal cream pies and the like, but I have heard rumors that Rolos are about as fierce as it gets when dipped in the fat-bubbler.


Whether your non-meat jam be sweet, savory, or somewhere in between, know that we the Jam Zone will always !BE THERE! for a non-meat jam when it is fried and maybe even served with some awesome sauce. You know what, even a good ole fashioned salad jams as well but only when served a la Cobb with homeys bleu cheese, bacon, grilled chicken, avocado, sittin on chrome.

Any non-meat jams you have devoured and would like to share with the general public? Then stop being afraid and comment.

Samosa! No d-d-d-d-doubt. The Bombay Ice Cream Shoppe/Grocery on 'Lencia has killer ones. $1.50, too.
