National Onion Ring Day
Date When celebrated : Always June 22
You're at any of a number of your favorite burger joints. You just ordered a burger with all of your favorite toppings Then, the waitress asks if you want anything with it. Of course you do! But, you're tired of same-o-same-o french fries. Then a smile creeps across your face as you say "yes, Onion Rings, please!" Those onion rings are the perfect side as today is National Onion Ring Day.
After french fries, onion rings are the second most popular choice to pair with your burger. Aren't you lucky that someone a long time ago, created the first onion ring recipe. Here lies the great mystery or debate..... just who first created the onion ring recipe?
It is well documented that the first onion ring recipe was in the recipe book The Art of Cookery Made Easy & Refined. It was published in 1802. In the 1900s, several other individuals, companies and restaurants have made claim to be the first. Those supporting their case suggest the 1802 recipe wasn't truly onion rings. But, that 1802 recipe called for onions sliced into rings, and to be fried. Undoubtedly, those who came up with recipes in the 1900s, contributed to the evolution of onion rings and contributed new recipes for our beloved rings. But, the 1802 recipe was the first. We don't mean to take sides in the debate, we're just saying..........................
It's so easy to participate in this special day. Simply, eat onion rings. However, you get extra brownie points, if you make onion rings from scratch. See Fried Onion Rings in Beer Batter
