Along along time ago…ok I’m not too old I don’t think , but it was long ago. I didn’t know how to boil water. I suddenly got into onions. What’s the difference? An onion is an onion right?
I’m not going to lie to you, I didn’t know the purpose of the different colors. An onion can be sweet, aromatic ( Love how they smell sautéed) and pungent. Someone can walk in to the room and say, ” wow it smells good in here .” I’ll smile because it’s only the onions. I always joke and say if you can’t cook, sauté onions and it smells like you know what you’re doing.
Today I’m not going to talk about all the onions in the world, but narrow down the most used onion in my house.
The red onion. It’s not red though …
