My friends at Concord Foods recently sent a package of their products for me to sample and review. Onion Ring Batter Mix was not included in the package but I later spotted it at my local market. I had to try it. With a house full of teenagers today, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity. What I truly like about this product is that the batter is tempura style so it is light and crispy, allowing the onions to be the star of the show. I even thinned mine down a little more than the directions called for and they turned out perfect. I served mine with balsamic ketchup and regular ketchup for the teens.
Making great tasting, light and crispy onion rings is a snap with this batter mix. You simply add water to the mix, add the sliced onions, and fry until golden brown. I do recommend serving them immediately as is the case with most fried foods. I have to admit that not even the rings that went through the photo shoot went uneaten. They were that good. The batter was so light and crisp you could see right through it!
