About

A humble vegetable, but a very important one – almost every meal begins with the peeling of an onion. They make a brilliant base for all sorts of dishes, from soups, stews and stocks to pasta sauces, stir-fries and curries. Ours are pretty pokey, so have some tissues to hand!

How to prepare

Onions are the foundation of so many dishes – but they can also be the centrepiece. Peel off the outer skin, cut a cross right to the root, stuff with thyme and a peeled garlic clove. Drizzle with oil and balsamic and roast at 200°C/ Gas 6 for about 45 mins, until tender.

Or finely slice and sweat with a little olive oil for 45 mins, until soft. Then spread thickly on a sheet of shortcrust pastry with a scattering of anchovies and olives before baking for 20 mins for pissaladière (a bit like pizza).

Storage

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

Our netting is 100% home compostable, made from PEFC-certified beechwood (a by-product of the foresting industry). Simply cut off the metal clips and put the net on your compost heap or in your council compost bin.
