All onions are not created equal -- some are sweeter than others.
During the winter months, some additional sweet varieties, such as Oso Sweet and Rio Sweet, often are imported from South America.
-Wanna know how to saute onions to use in a recipe? It's easy with our simple instructions. First, half through the roots end. Peel your onion and lay each half cut side down. Then make cuts through the root but not all the way through. Turn and cut crosswise into pieces and that my friends is the easiest way to chop an onion. Next, just add your onions to hot oil in a skillet. Cook and stir over a medium high heat until tender and translucent but not brown. Unlike caramelized onions, sauted onions aren't brown but are just tender and flatly mellow the flavor in a recipe. Lastly, stir your onions into your favorite recipes. We're putting ours in sour cream for an irresistible dip that's full of oniony flavor.
