Onion Charm

Few things bring as much delight to the table as fresh onions. So sweet, so juicy, your knife crunches slicing through them. This is when they are at their best, before they harden, while they are still green and shiny. Onion green is a green of its own.

Let them go to flower and they put on a comedy, first with their silly caps which make you laugh. And then their charming flowers open, hundreds of little happy faces, tickling the air with sweet perfume. It’s an onion grower’s dilemma. Eat you or let you bloom, eat you or let you bloom?
