Crispy Shoestring Onions

How interesting... I never knew that apple cider vinegar would be such a key component to making the onions perfectly crisp. I can't wait to try this recipe~


2 quarts peanut or vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 pound onions, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rings
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  1.  Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 200 degrees. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until 350 degrees.
  2. Meanwhile, combine flour, 1 teaspoon salt, cream of tartar, and ½ teaspoon pepper in large bowl. Toss onions, apple juice, and vinegar to coat in another bowl. Drain onions and transfer to flour mixture, tossing to coat.
  3. Fry half of onion rings, stirring occasionally and adjusting burner as necessary to maintain oil temperature between 325 and 350 degrees, until golden brown and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain onions on wire rack set in rimmed baking sheet and place in oven. Bring oil back to 350 degrees and repeat with remaining onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.

this is also new to me for adding in acd, surely good outcome in the crispy rings. I take it more of a de-tox, mixed in hot water in the morning.
