Recipe Notes

Roasted Sweet Onions*  Some U.S. sweet and mild onion varieties (available in the spring/summer) have a similar sugar content (or sometimes even less sugar) than the storage varieties.  Naturally, we do not always taste that difference due to both water and sulfur content present in a raw onion; however, we can often taste those differences when onions are cooked!

Look for sweet onions that are light golden-brown in color, with a shiny tissue-thin skin and firm, tight, dry necks. (Ordinary storage onions are darker and have a thicker skin.) When cut into, sweet onions should have a creamy white interior. Avoid onions that have soft spots or surface bruises.

Sweet onions are often named by geographic origin and described as being sweet. The best known are: Vidalia from Georgia, Walla Walla from Washington, Maui from Hawaii, Imperial from California, Carzalia from New Mexico, The Texas Spring or Supersweet from Texas, and OSO Sweets from Chile, South America.
