Apple Rings for Onion Rings

4

Heat oil to 375 degrees F. (Caution: Do not let the oil get too hot or your rings will burn quickly. If rings are cooking too quickly, lower the heat of the oil a bit.) Combine the liquid and dry ingredients while the oil heats up.

5

Dip apple rings into batter, removing any excess. A little is okay, it gives them a nice swirly look. Cook in oil in small batches, turning frequently to monitor browning.

Drying Fried Apple Rings

6

When the rings are golden brown, remove to a wire rack and sprinkle with sea salt.

Enjoy!
