Organic Red Onions usually have a mild, sweet taste. If using raw and they have a strong sharp taste, place sliced or chopped into a colander in sink and pour boiling water on top, then refresh with cold water.
They are storage onions with purplish-red skin, and generally have a 4-inch diameter. Organic Red Onions are a favorite in quiche, pizza, and onion soup and are great au gratin, fried, stir-fried, creamed, or stuffed.
Melissa's Organic Produce; a choice made closer to nature, is preferred for reasons of taste, health and the environment. Melissa’s Organic Red Onions are a source of vitamin C, potassium, and folic acid with about 38 calories per serving.
Melissa’s Organic Red Onions are hand selected for excellent quality. Look for onions that are firm, heavy for size and have dry, papery skins. When selecting red onions avoid any signs of moisture, green shoots or dark spots. Keep in mind that humidity breeds spoilage in dry onions.
Store whole onions in a cool, dry place with good air circulation for up to two months (depending on condition when purchased). Once cut, tightly wrap any unused onion in plastic, refrigerate and use within four days.
