Vidalia Sweet Onion Blossom: Cut tip from onion and peel, leaving root intact. Do not cut root end from onion. Place onion, root end down on a kitchen towel to securely keep onion from rocking. Cut onion into a blossom using a Vidalia Brands onion cutter or by slicing into eight wedges, cutting almost the entire way through the onion. Carefully push onion back through cutter. Keep fingertips away from blades. Loosen petals gently, one by one, with your fingertips, then gently tap onion's root end on your counter top to help achieve a flowering effect. Soak onion in iced water 5-10 minutes to help open petals further. Blossom should be thoroughly opened before battering. The secret to a beautiful blooming onion lies in the battering technique, which is comprised of 3 basic steps - a generous initial dry mix coating, a thin wet batter coating, and lastly, another thorough, even dry mix coating! Blend 1 cup dry batter mix with 1-1/2 cups cold water to create a liquid batter. Liquid batter will be thin. Place 1-1/2 cups dry batter mix in a large, separate bowl. Preheat oil in a large deep fryer or heavy gauge deep pot to 375-400 degrees F. Oil should be deep enough to cover the cooking onion, but pot should be no more than 2/3's full to avoid a dangerous spill-over when onion is fully submerged. Remove flowered onion from water, and generously coat with dry mixture, dusting deeply between petals, then shake off excess mix. Quickly submerge dusted onion in liquid batter. Lift onion from liquid batter and allow to drip briefly, then generously coat with dry batter once again. Move petals apart with your fingertips and spoon dry batter deeply between petals to achieve a thorough, even coating. Immediately deep fry blossom until crisp and golden 4-5 minutes. Drain and serve with Blossom Sauce. Fabulous Onion Rings & Onion Petals, Too! To cut Rings, peel and slice onion into 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick rounds, then separate into rings. To cut Petals, trim tip and root end from onion, peel and cut into blossom using Blossom Cutter. Then, simply peel petals from blossom! Blend 1 cup Batter Mix with 3/4 cup water until smooth. Toss onion rings or onion petals into batter and gently stir to coat well. Drop coated rings or petals into hot oil (375-400 degrees F.) one at a time and fry in batches until crisp and golden. Drain on paper toweling and serve while hot! Experiment with your Vidalia Sweet Onion Kit by adding different spices to our batter. For a Cajun taste, add cayenne pepper, chili powder or other zesty seasonings to give your blossom an added zip.
