Had a blooming onion maker that I'd never used & I thought I'd give this a try. I followed the instructions in the book that came with it, which included soaking the cut onion in ice water for 30 minutes (makes the petals larger & stronger & helps them to maintain their shape during cooking, at least that's what the book said :), dipped in dry then wet then dry, & fried root side up for 5 seconds, then pushed the root down deeper in the oil & fried for another 5 seconds (it said this allows the petals to expand), allowed it to fry for 3 min then turned the onion over so petals were upright & fried for another 3 minutes. Other than this, I followed the recipe exactly & it came out great....a lot of work, but great!!!
