Freshly harvested candy onions and corn are not to be missed. They are much milder and sweeter than your average onions and a special delight when caramelized. Elise Bauer’s website Simply Recipes has a wonderful post on How to Caramelize Onions.
Speedier and simpler options for turning candy onions into a culinary delight:
Slice horizontally, drizzle with some olive oil (add some balsamic vinegar if you like) , grill for about 20 minutes.
Roasted Onions with Balsamic Vinegar
Slice, toss with balsamic vinegar until coated and roast at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Speaking of balsamic vinegar, we have Condimento White Balsamic Vinegar, a uniquely thick and sweet variety.
First of the fresh corn! Not more to add except WOO-HOO!
