Cured red onions of mixed sizes, medium to large — a kitchen staple, and the start of soups, stews and so many other dishes. Field cured, sweet, crisp and delicious with a thin skin that makes them easy to work with, keep in a cool spot on your counter and they’ll keep for weeks. But you’ll use them up before you know it — fresh in salads, salsas or sliced thin for sandwiches, pickle them for tacos and hamburgers or, sauté them slowly to caramelized perfection. Onions are nutrient-dense — high in vitamin C, B and potassium, and low in calories, and oh yes, delicious! $18 per ten pound bag.
