Onions

Unleash the bold, sweet flavour of our fresh onions. Each bulb is carefully cultivated to perfection, delivering a crisp texture and a taste that ranges from sharp and pungent when raw to sweet and mellow when cooked. These versatile veggies are a kitchen staple, perfect for adding depth to your dishes. Dice them into salads for a zesty kick, or caramelise them slowly for a rich, sweet addition to burgers and steaks. You can also chop them finely and mix them into soups and stews for an extra layer of flavour.

Selecting the best onions at the grocery store is simple with these tips. Look for onions that are firm and heavy for their size, with dry, papery skin. The outer layers should be intact without any signs of sprouting or soft spots. Avoid onions that have visible mould, are too lightweight, or have wet, mushy spots. The neck of the onion should be tight and dry, indicating freshness. Fresh onions will have a mild, earthy aroma without any strong odour​.

Onions can be enjoyed in countless delicious ways. For a classic side, caramelise sliced onions in butter until golden brown and sweet. Add raw onions to your favourite salads or salsas for a fresh, crisp bite. You can also bake them whole with a drizzle of olive oil and herbs for a rustic, comforting dish. For a bold flavour boost, mix onions into your soups, stews, or casseroles. Grilled onions make a great topping for burgers and sandwiches, adding a smoky sweetness that’s hard to resist​.
