making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Fig, Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Flatbreads
2 store-bought naan flatbreads
1 pint fresh figs, rinsed, stems removed and quartered
4 ounces blue or Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1 large sweet onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Honey, for drizzling
Make the caramelized onions: Heat oil in a large skillet to medium on the stove-top. Add onions and cook, stirring every few minutes, until the onions turn fragrant and a golden caramel color. Season with salt the last few minutes of cooking. Once onions are caramelized, remove from heat and set aside.

Toast flatbreads lightly in the oven. Once toasted, place flatbreads on a work surface. Spread a spoonful on onions on each flatbread and top with blue cheese and figs. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with honey, slice and serve.
