Boiling onions are available year round.
Onions cultivated for boiling can be a multitude of varieties, including short-day, intermediate and long-day varieties grown at densely-packed, high populations in conditions that are ideal for warm summer bulbing production. White globe onions are the most commonly used onion for boiling purposes but they can also be yellow or red onions.
Boiling onions are characterized as any onion variety that is specifically grown to be picked at a size smaller than the common onion. Their flavors can range from mild to savory to pungent, depending on variety and the sulphuric content of the soil in which they are grown.
Although perfectly suitable for using to infuse flavor to soups and stocks, boiling onions can be dry roasted, grilled or braised, treated as a common onion and added to a variety of savory dishes, both raw and cooked. Roast braising onions until browned and tender, then add to a sauce of reduced white wine, stock and cream for creamed onions. Add halved onions to bean-cooking water or stock for additional flavor. Dice boiling onions and add to vegetable stir fry. Boiling onions will keep, stored cool and dry, for up to a month.
