Organic Red onions are an attractive, milder alternative to the yellow onion with their shiny purple skin and red-tinged flesh.
Store onions in the fridge, avoiding dampness, or in a cool dark larder.
Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. They can be eaten fresh or dried, raw or cooked, as a vegetable, as an ingredient in other dishes or as a seasoning. Although the flavor can vary according to the skin color, they can often be substituted for each other in recipes. Trim the root end and remove the dry papery outer skin before using it raw in salads, cold soups, sandwiches or as a garnish. Onions can be baked whole or steamed, with or without skin, boiled, barbecued or microwaved until tender for 15-20 minutes and served as a vegetable. Pan-fry sliced or diced and serve with meat or fish; add to sauces, crepes, casseroles, omelettes and tarts.
