the last of the onions have been dug up and hung in the shed for drying. all told, there are about a 100 to take us into next year, or so we hope.
i’m never sure what will carry over, and though we have a nice dry crawl space to store produce in, they can still go soft, as i discovered last year. we will shred 1 or 2 dozen to put in the dehydrator as a backup supply. i experimented earlier and was impressed with the intense flavour dried onions have.
again here are some links to a few onion based recipes…notably the all time fave…french onion soup! as a bonus, my partner makes the best french bread outside of paris!
