I was downstairs cleaning up red onions yesterday. As each of these little gems passed through my hands, I couldn't stop marveling at how gorgeously they caught the light. Then I started to think about how some of them were almost heart shaped, and what a sweet thing for someone's sweetheart! Just as is or perhaps sliced thinly with local greens, and maybe some orange wedges.
We'll have those red onions in abundance this Saturday at the Farmers' Market in Exeter! We'll also have the yellow onions, red potatoes, yellow skinned potatoes, and turnips. This could be the winter carrots' swan song, so snatch them up while you can.
