Let’s talk onions

    Shopping for Onions

    Choose red or yellow onions that are heavy relative to their size, firm to the touch, and have smooth, thick skin. Avoid discoloration and onions that look like they are sprouting. Store yellow onions in cool, dry spot for up to three months; red onions only last two to four weeks. Wrap individual onions in foil if stored in the fridge to prevent their odor spreading to other foods. Lessen any tears by cutting onions with a sharp knife either under running water or after freezing for 20 minutes.

    Nutritional Info

    Onions boost taste and good health due to low calories and strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Onions contain good amounts of fiber, Vitamins B6, B9 (folate), and C, as well potassium, along with Vitamins B1, B2, B3, and B5, plus calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc.

    ALWAYS keep onions—and food containing onions—away from cats, dogs, horses, and monkeys to avoid potentially fatal poisoning. For human, raw onions can trigger allergic reactions, and raw or cooked onions can cause digestive problems, especially for people with IBS.

    Taste Profile

    The sharp taste of raw onions is moderated by cooking. Red onions are naturally milder and sweeter, while yellow onions have a stronger taste.
