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.

Teriyaki Mushroom, Onion and Potato Skewers
6-8 small, waxy potatoes, washed and cut in half
8-10 brown mushrooms, brushed clean and sliced in half lengthwise
1 medium sweet onion, cored and cut into wedges
1/2 cup store-bought teriyaki sauce (We like Soy Vay brand)
Chopped chives, for garnish
Parboil the potatoes: Put the potato halves into a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook potatoes until they can be pierced with a fork but are not falling apart, about 5-6 minutes. Drain potatoes well in a colander and let cool.

Preheat your grill to medium.Thread potatoes, mushrooms and onions onto skewers, alternating the vegetables. Brush with teriyaki sauce. Grill for 12-14 minutes, turning once. The onions and mushrooms should be tender and the sauce should be caramelized but not burned. Garnish with chopped chives and serve immediately.

*Note: Metal skewers are great for grilling as they do not burn, are dishwasher-safe and reusable. They cost more than wooden skewers but are worth the price as you can use them for years to come. If you do opt for wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for about 15 minutes so they don't burn on the grill.
