There are many classic recipes specifically for onion dishes so they can be appreciated in their own right. But there is hardly a recipe where onions, or Alliums, are not used. Gently fried until soft, or fried more fiercely until golden, they add a unique, savoury flavour to dishes. Raw onions are a useful source of fibre, Vitamin C and folic acid.
Areas Grown: Most areas throughout Ireland. Spring onions are mainly grown in Dublin, Cork coastal areas.
