Here is a recipe for you readers who are onion lovers.
Amish Cook's Homemade Onion Rings
- 2 good sized onions
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 /2 teaspoon salt
- 1 /2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 /2 cup flour
- 1 /4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Peel and slice onions. Slice fairly thick at least 1 /4 inch thick. Separate rings and use only the larger ones. Refrigerate until ready to use. Beat egg. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. In a large saucepan heat oil or shortening. Fill pan at least half full. When oil is hot enough dip onion rings into batter and cook until golden brown on both sides
Mmmmm, just the thought of freshly fried onion rings makes my mouth water.
Even though I am supposed to avoid fried foods because of my cholesterol,
I may make a batch of these.
Glad to hear that Verena's health is improving, if slowly. The years do pass
quickly as our children grow, but it is fun to reflect back on their births and
other milestones in their lives,
I recall my mother hanging out sheets on wintery days so they'd have that
fresh smell, and all of the other laundry in the basement for a couple of days.
Then having to sprinkle and iron everything. That's one chore I don't miss. Glad we have dryers now and no more dampness in the basement. Mother
has passed on and I am sure she doesn't miss the old days of laundry either.
Happy Birthday,Verena! Glad to hear that her health is improving. My family likes onion rings,so,I'll try this recipe for them.
Happy Birthday Verena.
Incredible memories of the birth of your daughter. It is amazing how each birth can be so different. Happy birthday Verena. I too have a December birthday.
Thank you so much for the recipe for onion rings. They are a favorite and prefer them over french fries any day... especially when made by fresh by hand.
Happy birthday to Verena! This past summer, returning to Maine from N.C., I passed through Quarryville, Pa. which is right off Rt 81. I went into Good's Store looking for drying racks as mine at home are getting rickety. How pleased I was to find that Red Hill Woodworks supplies Good's with sturdy, well made racks using 3/4" dowels. These are the best I have ever found so I bought two large ones. Score!
