making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Gluten Free Onion Rings
For the onions:
2 medium sweet onions, peeled, sliced into rings and separated
1/3 cup cornstarch
Neutral oil, for frying

For the batter:
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups gluten free flour mix
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup milk
1 cup club soda
Toss onions in 1/3 cup cornstarch, shake off excess cornstarch, and set aside.

Whisk all batter ingredients together.

Heat oil in a large skillet to 350 F on the stove top. Once oil is hot, begin dipping rings into batter with kitchen tongs. Shake off excess batter and immediately add to oil; be sure not to overcrowd the pan. Fry onion rings until golden brown, flipping once in the middle of cooking. Once onion rings are cooked, remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Continue frying until all onions are used up. If you have not eaten all of the onion rings during the cooking process, serve immediately.
