national onion ring dayToday is National Onion Ring Day.

The first known iteration of the onion ring appeared in the 1802 cookbook “The Art of Cookery.” The recipe for Fried Onions with Parmesan Cheese called for onions to be sliced into 1/2 inch rings, dredged in a batter of flour, cream, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese, then deep fried in boiling lard.

For recipes and more information about onions than you might ever want to know, read the National Onion Association’s blog, written by the mononymous “Onionista.” There you will also find a video demonstrating how to cut onions in a way that will elicit fewer tears.

Have a happy, dry-eyed National Onion Ring Day!
