Memere’s Onion Rings

At our last family barbecue, my grandmother made her famous onion rings.

Since they are somewhat messy to cook, a turkey fryer outdoors worked out very well.

As each batch was ready, the hungry flock of family swooped in to enjoy the perfectly golden, lightly battered, salted onion rings.

When I think of onion rings, usually I think of using a beer batter.  My grandmother say she always uses ginger ale, and that she’s used Sprite before when she didn’t have ginger ale on hand.
