How to Use the Onion Seeds from Australia You Can Buy from Eden Seeds Online
The humble onion might not be the most glamorous vegetable, but it's certainly one of the most fundamental to flavourful cooking. Not just filled with excellent nutrients, onions are also packed with flavour. Whether sautéed in butter, sliced and simmered into soup or used in any number of other applications, onions are very versatile. There are so many different types, too — from white, red and brown onions to spring onions and shallots, the variety is part of what makes them such a fun vegetable to grow. Of course, growing them at home is also advantageous because one often needs so many of them in the kitchen.
Storage is the key to having a long supply. Once harvested onions may be hung by clumping the leaves together and tying a cord or twine to enable bunches to be hung up in a dry airy place.
