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.

Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Caramelized Onion
16 ounces potato gnocchi
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms of your choice, brushed clean and sliced
1 medium sweet or yellow onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken/vegetable stock
Salt and pepper, to taste
Freshly grated parmesan, for serving
Cook gnocchi according to package instructions, drain and set aside.

Heat butter and oil in a large, heavy skillet to medium-high on the stove top. Add onions and stir to coat with the fat. Cook for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and fold with onions; season with salt. Continue to cook for 10 minutes or until the mushrooms have released most of their water and the vegetables are crisp on the edges. Pour in wine, making sure to scrape up all of the brown bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Once wine has reduced be half, add gnocchi and fold together. Adjust seasoning and let cook for a few more minutes. To serve, add a scoop of pasta to a serving dish and garnish with parmesan.
