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.

Lyonnaise Potatoes
2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4" rounds
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 small yellow or sweet onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
Add sliced potatoes to a pot of water and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer for 4 minutes. Drain well.

Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet until shimmering. Add 1/2 potatoes and 1/2 of the onions. Let cook until potatoes are starting to crisp and the onions are golden, about 15 minutes. Add the rest of the butter, oil, potatoes, and onions and continue to cook, mixing until all onions are softened and browned, about 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and garnish with parsley. Season with salt and pepper and serve.
