Onion rings: a mystery in history

The origin of onion rings is not known for sure. His first appearance was in 1933, on one of the pages of the New York Times.

However, the famous Pig Stand restaurant claims to be the inventor of onion rings, which he says dates back to the 1920s. However, there is insufficient evidence for this.

These crispy onion rings are the nominees for you to enjoy with your favorite movie.

Some curiosities of this snack

  • In 1802 there was a recipe very similar to onion rings, called “fried onions with Parmesan cheese”, which had a very similar preparation.
  • The ideal onions to prepare this snack are white, but there are those who prefer to enjoy them with purple onions (it’s all a matter of experimenting).
  • Believe it or not, there are onion ring flavored pills! They are only available on the Internet (would you try them)
  • The onion plant sleeps! This is a quality that some types of plant possess, called dormancy. Plants take a resting posture that helps them save energy, especially in unstable weather conditions.
  • Every year, in the Swiss city of Bern, they celebrate the Zibelemärit or Onion Market. This with the aim that the producers show their products, as well as curious exhibitions of onions dressed in an artistic way, and delicious dishes with this ingredient (there are no doubt that there are many onion rings out there).

  • Other antioxidants, such as vitamin C, together with quercetin, fight free radicals and reduce the chances of developing cancer by strengthening the immune system.
  • Its antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory qualities make onion an adjunct in the treatment of colds, nasal congestion, infections and some pain caused by inflammation.
  • The prebiotics present in onion offer great benefits by promoting the development of beneficial bacteria (probiotics) that help digestion.
  • The active components of onion, allicin and allin, have antithrombotic properties (prevent the formation of blood clots) and contribute to the reduction of blood pressure. Great!
  • Research done in the UK showed that its thiosulfinates (sulfur compounds responsible for its smell) protect against cardiovascular disease.
