Papery white skin and white tender flesh, onions have a sweet taste and more intense flavor than the yellow one. They are used in many recipes as they add this distinctive irreplaceable taste, and some like to eat raw or chop it to add to their sauces or salads.
You can use fresh white onions in salads, sauces, guacamole or in sandwiches and burgers. You can also chop white onions and add them to soups or grill them with meat or put them on the top of pizza. The following items pair well with white onions: tomatoes, jalapenos, carrots, turnips, potatoes, garlic, fennel, rosemary, cilantro, and thyme, poultry, beef, seafood, beans, rice, and spices such as cumin, cinnamon, coriander, anise and cloves.
Store the white onions in a cool, dry and dark place to keep them for 1-2 months.
2 tablespoons butter per medium onion
- Your first step is to peel the onions, slice off their edges, then cut them into four or five thick slices.
- Now place the slices in a well-buttered rimmed baking dish. Coat them with melted butter and sprinkle them with Kosher salt.
- The last step is to bake the onions until golden brown. This should take about 40 minutes in a 400 F oven, and you should flip the slices midway through baking.
