Onions


I could have put up a picture of the ones in my kitchen, but these look better. [Big Grin]

By the way, anyone have any good recipes that make use of onions?

Also, any savory dish ever. Also many sweeter dishes. Can you guess that I like onions?

Oh here is a delicious onion tart!

Did you see the size of those onions? Unseemly.

Well, thanks for the tips so far.
You see, my roommate recently moved out and he left me with a net of onions. Letting them go to waste would be silly, hence my question.

The key to great french onion soup is lots of onions and deglazing about 6 times.

But why do the onions have to be French?

Can it be Freedom Onion Soup?

Also, is the onion trick used by Glenda in Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett a real thing? i.e. she cooks a pie where the onions remain crunchy (in her Plowman's Pie recipe) and Lady Margolotta deduces that she accomplishes this by "put[ting] [the pickled onions] in a cold room at very nearly freezing point for some time immediately before baking, possibly wrapping them in cheese for the sake of temporary insulation, and, if you have assembled your pie correctly and paid attention to temperatures, I think that would do the trick."

Julia Child making French Onion Soup:

Honestly, it never occurred to me that onion soup could be worth eating, let alone making, until a friend came over and made it for me. OMG, it is one of the more delicious things in the world! And you can put a LOT of onions in it.
