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.

Sweetie’s Bleu Cheese Pasta
1 16-oz package spaghetti
2 large Sweetie Sweet® onions,  thinly sliced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 oz bleu cheese, crumbled
Cook pasta in a large pot of lightly-salted, boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. While pasta cooks, heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Sauté onions until golden brown and then stir in garlic, and cook for two minutes longer. Remove from heat, and stir in balsamic vinegar. In a large bowl, combine pasta, onion mixture, and bleu cheese. Toss until evenly coated, and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
