Onion rings

Author: The Hoagland Homestead

2019 was our first year growing a large crop of sweet onions. We grew several varieties, including a couple that get very large. My 5 year old picked the biggest he could find and insisted we make onions rings. He helped dredge each ring in the flour mixture and was proud of our end results. These are a family favorite!
