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.

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

Vegetarian Roasted Beetroot and Preserved Lemon Salad Recipe

Summary: Preserved lemons give this salad a lovely Middle Eastern touch. They are very salty, though, and so are feta or halloumi, so don't salt the beetroots. If you don't have them, you can also use blanched lemon slices, in which case you might choose to salt the beetroots. For a warm salad, do not allow the beetroots to cool completely, and maybe swap the feta for grilled halloumi. In this case, serve immediately, as halloumi gets hard if allowed to sit too long after grilling. Serves 4 as a starter or 2 as a main dish (you can add some cooked quinoa to make it a more substantial meal).
