Elements & Variations
ONIONS Select candy onions like Walla Walla’s, Maui’s, or Vidalia’s for onion rings, in any other case, an everyday yellow onion will work. To make yellow onions sweeter, soak the slices in chilly water for 10 minutes to dilute the sulfur content material. For jumbo onion rings, use the most important slices and save the smaller ones for Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions, Crispy Fried Onions, or Pickled Crimson Onions.
BEER Technically, ANY carbonated beverage makes the batter fluffy. I choose a lightweight beer on this recipe however for extra beer taste, use a darker beer like Guinness.
BATTER Cornstarch and flour combined with the beer helps the batter cling to every ring, and baking powder helps the batter ‘rise.’ Hold the quantities for the batter as directed to ensure one of the best ‘cling.’
