i went on a fishing trip in the fall, at a time when the fish just aren't biting. i took a bag of homemade batter for frying the fish, but we didn't catch anything worth keeping. pike are just too big a pain to clean. instead we made onion rings using the batter and deep fried them in a pot of oil over the open camp fire. one of my most proud culinary achievements. they were greasy as hell, and with a cooler full of cold beers by the lake were just about the perfect thing to eat.
Me and the fiancee make home made fries and onion rings all the time. Also, our new french fry love is making sweet potato fries.
