About Organic Red Onions

Native to Asia, these underground bulbs are prized all over the world for the depth and flavour that they add to savoury dishes. Dry onions are fully matured, with juicy flesh and dry, papery skin and have a mild flavour that becomes wonderfully sweet upon lengthy cooking. Medium to large in shape, they have a strong flavour and are good for stuffing or baking; only use raw in salads if you want an assertive onion flavour.

These onions tend to be medium to large in size and have a mild to sweet flavour. They are often consumed raw, grilled or lightly cooked with other foods, or added as colour to salads. They tend to lose their redness when cooked. Red onions are available throughout the year. The red colour comes from anthocyanadins such as cyanidin. Red onions are high in flavonoids. They can be stored 3 to 4 months at room temperature.

Onions are a very good source of vitamin C, chromium and dietary fibre. They are also a good source of manganese, molybdenum, vitamin B6, folate, potassium, phosphorus and copper.

Onions, like garlic, are members of the Allium family, and both are rich in powerful sulphur-containing compounds, beneficial phytonutrients and antioxidants that are responsible for their pungent odours and for many of their health-promoting effects. There is extensive evidence linking onions to reducing your risk of several common cancers.

June Birch:Beautiful and wonderfully grown onions with such a fresh distinctive taste. A joy to look at.

By June Birch on 08/07/2016

Really good colour and flavour from these red onions, I use them for salads and sandwich fillings - unlike white onions, these actually add taste! Also really good in gravy

Vegan Ethiopian Red Lentils Mesir Wat Recipe

Summary: Misr Wat or Mesir Wat is a vegan Ethiopian stew made from red split lentils and the famous Ethiopian Berbere spice mix. Some Ethiopians, for religious reasons, eat an exclusively vegan diet, and many eat vegan dishes on special 'fast' days. This explains the abundance of vegetarian and vegan specialties. Ethiopian cuisine is one of the most flavoursome cuisines in Africa, and this red lentil stew is no exception. You can of course use a ready-made, shop-bought Berbere since mix, but I promise you that if you make your own, you will be rewarded by a rich and complex tantalising flavour that is well worth the small effort of assembling the all very common ingredients (except perhaps the fenugreek, just leave it out if you have trouble sourcing it) needed to make your own Berbere spice mix. Misr Wat is traditionally served with Injera, a soft sourdough flat bread, but you can also enjoy it with a crispy green salad.

Raw Pickled Spiced Onions Recipe

Summary: Pickled onions are so easy to make ! I pickle them whole if I am planning to eat them in a week or two, at least, but for pickled onions ready to eat overnight, I pickle them sliced. Many people boil the vinegar and add sugar. I have found over the years that if I soak my onions in salty water overnight, it works just fine with raw room temperature vinegar. Also, I don't add any sugar, as it is healthier. If you usually buy pickled onions with sugar in them, please try this recipe, I promise you will not miss the sugar at all ! As easy as 1-2-3. 1- Soak the onions in brine overnight. 2- Rinse, drain, put in a jar with spices, if using, and wait overnight. 3- Eat in salads, sandwiches, barbecues, etc.
