Because I had too many onions, we made onion straws/French fried onions yesterday.
Note to self: Check inventory before sending Tom out for groceries.
Instead of making my own flour mixture, we used Don’s Chuck Wagon Onion Batter by Hodgson Mills. I used it dry rather than mix in any liquids to make a batter. After slicing the onions into super thin rings, I soaked them in milk for a half an hour, drained the onions from the milk then coated them in the dry mix. I let them sit for about 15 minutes before frying.
A big o’pile of floured onions before becoming delectable, crunchy onion straws-
The first of three large batches-
They were so good as was the cranberry liqueur I made that had to sit for almost two months before we could drink it.
Phew! Is that what they call a run-on sentence?
It was a good day!
