Onions are surprisingly easy to work with, particularly if you follow these tips: 1. To reduce tearing when slicing onions, chill them first for 30 minutes. 2. High heat makes onions bitter. When sauteeing, always use low or medium heat. 3. To make onions milder, soak in milk or pour boiling water over slices. Let stand for 30-40 minutes, then refresh in an ice water bath. 4. To reduce tearing when slicing onions; cut off the top, peel off the outer layers and leave the root end intact. The root end has the largest concentration of sulphuric compounds which make your eyes tear. 5. To remove the smell of onions from your hands or cooking equipment, rub them with lemon juice (or salt, if the pots or pans are made of aluminum, cast iron or carbon steel). 6. To get rid of onion breath, eat parsley. There is a lesson on onions available through the University of Minnesota Extension Office - call (320)839-2518 or 1-800-279-2518 if interested.

Onions are so well-loved the world over that many regions claim them as their own. All onions come from the botanical genus of Allium. There are more than 500 varieties of onions produced commercially around the world. If there is a birthplace for onions as we know them today, it is probably central Asia. Although, it's hard to say exactly how onions made their way to civilization because onions predate written history. Once onions amved in Rome, they were christened with the name that eventually evolved into onion. It stems from the Latin word, unio, which in Middle English became unyon. Ancient Greeks and Romans consumed onions in huge quantities, both raw and cooked. Antony and Cleopatra worshipped onions, believing them to be a symbol of eternity because of the concentric circles that make up their unique internal structure. Onions were also a key part of the Grecian athletes' diet. Herodotus advised the first Olympic athletes to eat onions to "lighten the balance of the blood." Gladiators were rubbed with onion juice to firm up their muscles. As time marched forward, onions became known for their healing powers. In the Middle Ages, physicians prescribed onions to alleviate headaches, snakebites and even hair loss. The pilgrims ate native North American onions and the onion they brought with them from Europe. Flavorful and nutritious, onions were on the first Thanksgiving table. QUALITY HEARING AIDS starting at $595.00 I'I1 guarantee your satisfaction in writing!
