Red onions are known for their mild, sweet flavour. They are named for the bright red to purple skin, a colour that can be seen in layers throughout the inside of the onion.
They are often eaten raw as part of a salad or a sandwich, but they can be cooked as well. Red onions are a perfect choice for people who want just a hint of onion flavour in a cooked dish.
Onions can be bought in large or small quantities and will remain fresh for up to one month if kept in a cool, dry place. They should never be stored in the refrigerator or in a plastic bag. Always choose onions with smooth, dry skin and no blemishes or soft patches. They should have a slightly sweet aroma while the skin is on. For the best flavour, avoid onions with green shoots.
