Cider Battered Onion Rings
After years of not being able to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day it’s finally happening again! I have been looking forward to this for so long and had planned on making heaps of new recipes and reshooting some of my old Paddy’s Day recipes. Unfortunately I’ve been out sick and only managed to shoot one new recipe: cider battered onion rings! Irish cider, especially Bulmers (also called Magners outside of Ireland), has always been one of my favourite drinks in a pub as I like sweet drinks and really dislike beer. I know, not a good look for a Belgian! Anyway, I have seen plenty of beer battered onion ring recipes before but decided to try making them with Bulmers. The sweetness of this apple cider gave the onion rings such a lovely flavour.
Making onion rings is in itself fairly easy. But it of course all depends on the batter and the oil temperature. If your batter is too runny, it won’t stick so add more flour to see if that helps. If the oil isn’t hot enough then your onion rings will just soak up the oil instead of getting crispy.
Enjoy and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
