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.
