Onion

Onions are a staple crop, used as a foundation in many different dishes. They add intense flavor to whatever they are added to, but also are eaten in many different ways on their own. Onions have a very pungent, sometimes harsh taste when raw, but when cooked become milder and sweeter. We grow both fresh and storage varieties, so they are available in the Spring into the late fall! 

Availability: 
June, July, August, September, October, November
Storage tips: 

Fresh onions should be stored in the refrigerator, and can be saved for several weeks. Storage onions should be kept in a dry dark place and can keep for weeks if not months!

Cooking tips: 
Onions can be cooked in pretty much any way you can think of. They are the foundation of many soups and stocks, and even have their own soup, French Onion. You can saute, fry, pickle, caramelize, and even freeze onions as well! They are great raw in salads or on sandwiches too!
