We use onions in just about everything savoury that we cook and eat. If you have ever wondered what type of onion to use or why a certain variety of onion was used in a recipe, you are not alone. We can help! Learn all about onions, from selecting, cooking and storing, to tips on cutting to avoid those unwanted tears.
When shopping for onions, you have plenty of choices available at the supermarket. Each onion has its own purpose in the kitchen, and knowing the difference is important if you find yourself with a recipe that calls for one type when you only have the other type in the pantry.
Choose bulbs that are firm and dry with a brittle, papery skin, free of mould and sprouts.

When onions are cut, compounds are released that form an irritating gas causing our eyes to tear. Here are some tips to keep those tears in check:
Store in a cool, dark, dry area. Do not store in plastic. Onions need well-circulated air for longest storage and may keep for 30 – 60 days
