Fabulous fried onion ringsFrom midgelet 8 years ago
How to make it
- Combine flour and beer in a large bowl and blend thoroughly using a whisk.
- Cover the bowl and allow the batter to sit at room temperature for no less that 3 hours.
- Twenty minutes before the batter is ready, preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- Place brown paper (from supermarket bags) or layers of paper towels on a jellyroll pan.
- Carefully peel the papery skins from the onions so that you do not cut into the outside onion layer.
- Cut onions into 1/4-inch thick slices.
- Separate the slices into rings and set aside.
- On top of the stove, melt enough shortening in a 10-inch skillet to come 2 inches up the sides of the pan.
- Heat the shortening to 375 degrees (use a deep-frying thermometer).
- With metal tongs, dip a few onion rings into the batter.
- Then carefully place them in the hot fat.
- Fry rings, turning them once or twice until they're an even, delicate golden color.
- Now transfer to the paper-lined jellyroll pan.
- To keep warm, place them on the middle shelf of the preheated oven until all the onion rings have been fried.
- They can be held in the warm oven for several hours and still retain their crispiness and crunchiness.
- To freeze: Fry rings and drain on brown paper at room temperature. Arrange on jellyroll pan and freeze.
- When frozen, pack in plastic bags and return to freezer.
- To reheat: Arrange frozen rings on jellyroll pan and place in a preheated 400-degree oven for 4 to 6 minutes.

This one sounds a bit different with the use of shortening. I like the paper bag oven warming method, too!juels in Clayton loved it
