Fall is officially here, and so is your chance to get to know onions. To really get to know onions. After all, did you realize that the onions you buy this time of year are “storage” onions? They have a lower moisture content which means they store well. This also makes them perfect for many cooking techniques associated with colder weather, like roasting and braising. Visit the National Onion Association website for more on this fascinating vegetable.
The National Onion Association is also sponsoring a wonderful giveaway here at Kitchen PLAY. Simply recreate any one recipe from this month’s Progressive Party, post about the experience on your blog and provide a link to your post on Kitchen PLAY to enter. All qualifying bloggers in each course will be entered to win $100 (6 prizes total). The deadline is October 31, 2011. Please review the complete contest rules before entering. Good luck!
