We try to keep it classy at the Food Network. We really do.

MTV's Jersey Shore is one of the exceptions. The season two premiere was the talk of the office this morning, particularly Snooki and JWoww's Southern fried pickle experience while en route to Miami.

We're pretty much always all about the food, and fried pickles are a favorite here. If you haven't tried deep frying pickles, we have some easy recipes you can whip up in time for next week's episode. Trust us, even if you're not a Shore fan, you'll love these variations on a mid-century Southern classic.

Haven't done enough fist pumping with your food yet? Whip up a Jersey Shore menu from Food2.com.

Water Bath Canning for Jams and Pickles

Most fruit preserves and pickles are sufficiently high in acid to be canned via a method called water bath canning, where jars are submerged in boiling water for a prescribed amount of time. This destroys any pathogens in the food, and creates a seal, thereby rendering the jars shelf-stable.
