They've got that crunch factor. Slice thinly and treat like potato chips!
Their dark red color dives deep into the rings. They have a zest to them but are the mildest of all onions—best enjoyed raw in salads or sammys.
It gets hard to resist snacking on these beauties as we harvest. Sweet and crunchy, the snap peas have always been one of our favorites. They make a great snack and are also amazing in many dishes!
Snow peas are very sweet, not as sweet as their cousin the snap pea which is what makes them perfect for a stir fry. They are a good dash to even the palate on a savory meal. They can also be eaten raw, every bit of it!
A pantry staple, the white onions have a sharper and more pungent flavor than yellow onions. They also tend to be more tender and have a thinner, more papery skin.
The yellow onion is the most popular go-to onion. It’s on the safe side between the white and red onion so, if you’re on the fence of how "oniony" your dish should be, this is safe place to land. Its elegant in taste and and is a perfect addition to whichever dish you’re working with!
How to Chop an Onion Without Crying
Why do we cry when we chop onions? Well, onions naturally produce a gas known as "Propanethiol S-oxide"—which triggers tears.
Here are our favorite tips to stop the crying:
- Freeze the onion prior to cutting
- Keep the sliced side facing the cutting board
- Keep a piece of bread in your mouth (we're not kidding)
- Use a super sharp knife
- Cut below the oven vent
- If all else fails...wear goggles!
