BLOOMING ONION 1



Preparation:

What this requires is a sharp knife and a steady hand. Use a LARGE onion, it is easier. Peel the onion, and slice enough off of one end so that it will stay upright by itself. Now, slice the onion vertically in a series of 1/4 - 3/8" parallel slices, stopping 1/2" shy of the bottom. Rotate the onion 90 degrees, and repeat. Place the onion in ice water, and let sit for at least 1 hour. (This causes the 'bloom' to open up.) Mix 1/4 c flour with one egg and 1 T milk. Remove the onion from the ice water and drain very well. Coat with the batter, and fry in very hot oil until golden brown.
