So what should you use when a recipe just calls for an onion? Your best bet is a common yellow bulb onion. But truth be told, yellow and white onions can be used interchangeably with little discernible difference, especially when cooked.

Instructions

Soak onion rings in a bowl of ice water for 1 hour; drain. Combine flour and seasonings in a large plastic bag; pour buttermilk into a shallow dish. Dip onion rings in the buttermilk, then transfer a few at a time to the flour using a skewer for easy maneuvering. Dip rings a second time into the buttermilk and flour using the skewers. Set the coated, skewered rings over a bowl while coating the remaining onions. Heat 3" oil in a pot over medium-high to 365°. Fry half the onions in the oil until golden, 34 minutes. Remove from the oil using skewers, then rest over a bowl to drain. Fry remaining onions in the same way.

Soak the onion slices in cold water to dilute the sulfur content, turning them sweet and mild.

For a crust that stays crisp and has character, double dip the rings in buttermilk and seasoned flour.

Statistics

Statistics

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 54.07. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 54.07) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
These onion rings are the best! I have made several different recipes and this one is by far the best one.
