How to store onions

Keep cool and dry, preferably somewhere with a bit of air movement.

How to cook onions

Try roasted onions. Peel back the outer layers of skin and cut a cross right down to the root. Stuff with some thyme sprigs and a peeled garlic clove, then sprinkle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Place in a dish, cover with foil and roast in a hot oven for 45 mins until tender. Great with roast meat.

Onion season

the season begins with fresh, green onions with their tops on from May. Dry white and red onions are around from July to February.

Organic onion farmer

We’ve tried to grow onions on our farm in Devon, but it’s far too rainy! Instead, we make use of the drier climate at Riverford on Sacrewell Farm in Cambridgeshire. Nigel’s crop does well on the naturally fertile silty clay loam soil on the farm.

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.
