I dream of Onions.

From the country...

"sturon" onions ready to harvest
green onions and fresh onions freshly harvested
nimble little fingers perfect for cleaning green onions...
freshly cleaned onions ready for market

It wasn't that long ago that I was dreaming about onions and it is nice to see things come to fruition. It is no secret that I LOVE onions (like love, love, love them...). Everything good starts with onions.. and garlic but that is another romance story. I am especially eager to try the cipollini onions which are still finishing up out in the patch.

Here are some really great onion recipes:

 This tart looks amazing for using cauliflowers and onions
This potato salad uses pickled green onions
and these blue cheese and scallion drop biscuits look-to-die for.
This dish combines oven roasted cipollini onions and cherry tomatoes- which I can't wait to try.

Oh! and last but not least, this recipe is for a shallot, and beer marmalade with prunes and cocoa nibs. I have all the ingredients for this- just need the time... can't wait.

special thanks to the recipes from Smitten Kitchen and David Lebovitz- two great blogs worth checking out...
