    Onions

    1 medium Raw onion contains: 60 Calories,1 gram Protein,14 grams Carbohydrates, 0 Fat,0 Cholesterol,10 mg Sodium, 200 mg Potassium, 11.9 mg Vitamin C (20% of USRDA). They are low in calories, and have a generous amount of B6, B1, and Folic acid.Onions contain chemicals which help fight the free radicals in our bodies. When a person eats at least 1/2 a raw onion a day, their good type HDL cholesterol goes up an average of 30%. Onions increase circulation, lower blood pressure, and prevent blood clotting. Look for dry outer skins free of spots or blemished. The onion should be heavy for its size with no scent. To make onions milder, soak them in milk or pour boiling water over slices and let stand. Rinse with cold water. To Reduce tears when cutting onions by first chilling the onions for 30 minutes. Cut off the top and peel the outer layers leaving the root end intact. (The root end has the largest concentration of sulphuric compounds that make your eyes tear.) There are generally two types of large, globe-shaped onions, classified as spring/summer or storage onions. The former class includes those that are grown in warm weather climates and have characteristic mild or sweet tastes. Included in this group are the Maui Sweet Onion (in season April through June), Vidalia (in season May through June) and Walla Walla (in season July and August). Storage onions are grown in colder weather climates and, after harvesting, are dried out for a period of several months, attaining dry, crisp skins. They generally have a more pungent flavor and are usually named by their color: white, yellow or red. Spanish onions fall into this classification. In addition to these large onions, there are also smaller varieties such as the leeks, shallots, green onion, or scallion, pearl onion and the there are ramps.

    Top your grilled steak,portabella mushroom or burger with these onion slices. Serve as a side to any main course you like. A little trick to keep the rings together is to skewer them with a wooden stick be it bambo or a rosemary stem. Just do soak it for at least 30 minutes.

    This is a good way to use up extra onions/garlic and store them for future uses. Be sure to store in cool, dry places at room temperature in AIRTIGHT containers out of sunlight. With no moisture to be allowed to enter the container...ever ever. FYI-Temperatures too high will result in the onions being cooked instead of dried and when overdried will lose its flavor and nutritive value. Onions/garlic that are underdried will spoil so be sure they are crisp when removed. 1 small clove = 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon dried garlic slices. 1 small or 1/4 cup chopped,fresh onion = 1 tablespoon dried onion.

    Sweating onions is done to accomplish for several purposes. Sweating gently cooks the onion to soften its texture, increase its sweetness and to reduce the sulfur content, which gives it a milder taste. Sweating onions for dishes, such as risottos, rice pilafs and braised meats is where the flavor begins. The sweat onions give a natural sweetness to dishes. See the instructions below for sweating onions.

    Sautéing onions is when a firmer textured and sweeter flavored onion is desired. Onions are browned, which creates a rich sweet flavor. Add to rice, sautéed vegetables, soups and pasta dishes.

    My Recipe #183096 and Recipe #204180 inspired me to make this recipe. Flavored with wonderful herbs, onion and garlic (a whole bulb not a garlic clove. Great for making Rosemary Roast beef or on roast chicken, roasted veggies, fries or top a baked Italian bread before baking. Add to a bowl of extra virgin olive oil for dipping. Remove tough stems from all the herbs and discard or save for a fire place or smoking foods. I air dried my garden herbs but you can oven dry them as well. The time for cooking is the drying of the onions and garlic. Garlic will dry quicker so watch them.

    I was intrigued when I saw this recipe and found it really good! Be sure to use SWEET ONIONS for they are not overpowering like the storage onions. They become nice and chewy and very sweet when baked. Yes it's a heart-healthy cake making it a lovely dessert for Valentines days. Sweet onions, sometimes referred to as "short day" onions, because their growing season occurs during the fall and winter with harvest usually in spring /summer, are fresh onions, picked and cured for a short time, then sent to market. Unlike storage onions, are harvested in late summer and fall, stored in warehouses and delivered to markets throughout most of the year. The batter is yolk-less and is very light.
