Cured White onions have a thin, dry paper sheath with a crisp translucent pearl white flesh that is pungent, savory and warm. Its barely sweet finish can be attributed to its higher moisture content than yellow onions.
White onions are available year-round.
The white onion is a long-day storage variety of onions that is grown for its bulbous root. Each plant produces a singular root that is harvested once its vertical above ground leaf tops begin to wither and fall over. When onions are cut, the cell walls release a sulfur compound called propanethial-S-oxide that floats into the air. The chemical, identified in 1985 by researchers at the University of St. Louis in Missouri, turns into sulfuric acid when it comes into contact with water, which makes up 90% of onions' flesh.
European, Asian, and Native American medicines are filled with onion treatments. Onion poultices are used in modern alternative medicinal treatments to reduce high fevers, relieve colds and congestion and to draw poisons from wounds and ulcers.
White onions are a versatile onion that can be used both raw or cooked in a variety of mediums whether sautéeing, slow roasting or grilling. They are quintessentially used for adding to soups and stocks. Complimentary ingredients include other alliums such as leeks and garlic, root vegetables including turnips, carrots and parsnips, bay leaves, fennel, tomatoes, a variety of herbs such as tarragon, rosemary, marjoram, cilantro and thyme, poultry, meat and seafood and spices such as cumin, cinnamon, corriander, anise and cloves.
The White onion is used throughout Mexico in many raw dishes, specifically as an accompaniment to cilantro in street tacos and in a variety of salsas. It is also dry roasted and paired with roasted chiles.
The onion is one of the oldest cultivated vegetables and is considered to be native to Central Asia. It has been cultivated since ancient times in the Middle East and India. It is now the most widely cultivated and distributed allium in the world, adapting to a variety of climates from cold to temperate, semi-tropical and dry.
