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.

Our Favorite French Onion Soup
2 medium yellow or sweet onions
3 garlic cloves, chopped
3 tablespoons flour
2 quarts beef stock
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup Marsala wine
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
2 springs fresh thyme
2 bay leaves
Salt and pepper, to taste
Slice onions into half-moons. Add oil and onions to a large stock pot; stir to combine. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Uncover the pot and cook until the onions begin to caramelize, about 15 minutes. Add garlic and flour and stir to combine. Let cook for 2 minutes. Add stock, wine, vinegar, thyme, bay leaves, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir. Simmer for 30 minutes to let flavors incorporate.

Slice and toast baguette slices.

Ladle soup into oven-safe bowls, place toast on top of soup, cover with Gruyere cheese slices, and place bowls onto a cookie sheet and under broiler to melt cheese.
