Share Recipe

Ingredients

FOR THE HOT PEPPER KETCHUP, MELT:

FOR THE ONION RINGS, DIP:

To achieve the perfect ring, you should soak the onions in cold water to dilute the sulfur content, and then double dip the rings in buttermilk and seasoned flour.

Instructions

For the hot pepper ketchup, melt jelly in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk in ketchup, vinegar, and salt; set aside.

For the onion rings, dip onion rings in buttermilk in a large bowl; combine flour, salt, baking powder, black pepper, paprika, and cayenne in another large bowl. With a skewer, dredge onion rings, a few at a time, in the flour mixture. Dip rings into buttermilk a second time and then back into flour mixture. Set rings on a rack and refrigerate while oil heats, about 15 minutes.

Heat 1-inch oil to 365° in a large pot over medium-high. Fry onions in batches until light brown, 2–3 minutes per batch. Transfer rings to a paper-towel-lined plate using a skewer, then season with salt. Fry remaining onion rings in the same manner.

Slice ends off the onion, cut into 1-inch-thick slices, and separate into rings, pushing through the center.

Double-dip rings in buttermilk and flour mixture — it produces a crispier crust and great flavor.
