Two colors of onions

I grew lots of onions this year but it certainly wasn’t enough!

I found onion sets at Home Depot in early spring and planted Georgia Sweet, Texas Sweet, Red Onions and Shallots. I planted them every 4″ or so all the way around the perimeter of 2 of my garden boxes. By mid-May the leaves were turning brown and I began to harvest. I’m afraid I went through pounds and pounds of fresh onions immediately because they were so delicious, so I didn’t get any to stockpile for use this winter.

Here’s my brother’s easy-as-pie recipe for
ONION RINGS
Onions, sliced into rings
Self Rising Flour
*here’s a tip from my brother: you can cook more onions in faster time if you cut the rings in half, ending up with onion “crescents”
Buttermilk
Oil for Frying

Adjust the amount of buttermilk and oil for the amount you’re making. Dip the onion slices in flour, dip in buttermilk, dip in flour again. Fry in med-hot oil til brown and crisp. Drain on paper towels. Triple the fun with the Outback Steakhouse style onion ring dipping sauce below.

Onion Ring Dipping Sauce
1 pint Mayonnaise
