The onion is the queen of the kitchen and it is impossible to imagine life without it. The vegetable onion is larger than the household or table onion, about the size of an apple. As it is milder in flavour, it is also well suited for eating raw, such as in a salad. The sweet onion with its mild-sweet flavour and delicate aroma is the perfect companion for salads and other delicious dishes.
Did you know? … The sweet onion does not burn the eyes as much during preparation.
Onions are best stored in a cool, dry and dark place. As a rule, they should not be stored in the refrigerator. Vegetable onions do not keep as long as table onions. We recommend checking onions occasionally if they are stored for a long time – a spoiled onion can be a significant smell nuisance.
