KCCI's Eric Hanson tries deep-fried butter at the Iowa State Fair.
It's made its way to the Indiana, Wisconsin, Texas, and Iowa State Fairs. Even something called the Canadian National Exhibition has served it. Paula freaking Dean has a recipe for the stuff. But, alas, there's no deep fried butter to be had at the Minnesota State Fair.
To make deep-fried butter, chilled or frozen butter is cut in strips or chunks, battered, and dunked in a hot oil bath until it melts and soaks into the cinnamon-sugar hull...or drips all over your pants. And you thought a deep-fried Snickers was unhealthy.
