The thing that really bothered me at work is how the onion strings are made at the Country Store. They throw the sliced red onions into water and then into some nasty manufactured powder. This is not right! Not right at all!
Therefore, I am posting this recipe to show everyone the REAL and BETTER way to make the yummy Onion Strings.
Here is what you are going to need:
-1 small Yellow Onion-thinly sliced
-1 cup Flour
-1 tsp Salt
-1/4 tsp Pepper
-1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Thinly slice the onions and place them in a baking dish with the Buttermilk. Make sure all the onions are covered in the Buttermilk. Let them soak for an hour or two.
In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
When you are ready to make the Onion Strings, heat about 1 to 1-1/2 inches of Canola Oil in a medium saucepan. Get the oil nice and hot!
