Delicious! Crispy on the outside and tender inside. Experiment with different types of onions; white, brown, red and purple. The rings are made from slices of onion, coated with batter, breadcrumbs, and flour and deep-fried until golden-brown and served as an appetizer. These delicious onion treats are the popular fast food version.

How to Select
Choose onions with tightly closed necks that are absolutely dry, avoiding those with a thick, woody center in the neck. The skin should be bright and shiny. If you notice dark, powdery patches under the skin, pass it up as this is an indication of a common mold which will eventually spoil the flesh.

Avoid those that are sprouting or have signs of mold. In addition, onions of inferior quality often have soft spots, moisture at their neck, and dark patches, which may all be indications of decay. Onions are available in fresh, frozen, canned, pickled, and dehydrated forms
