Fresh White Boiler Onions are small and round (1″ to 1-1/2″ diameter), and harvested while they are young and milder in taste than their larger garden-variety cousins. As their name suggests, they are primarily used as boiling onions in dishes with longer cooking times that allow their flavor to develop. Look for ones that are dry, plump and firm, and discard any showing signs of decay, wrinkling or sprouting.

Handling

  • Store in a cool, dry, dark place with good ventilation
  • Keeps several weeks when properly stored
  • Blanche in boiling water or trim rooted end to remove outer skin

Benefits

Fresh White Boiler Onions are milder in taste than larger white onions. They are best when used whole in stews, braises, casseroles and soups allowing their taste to mellow and develop while slowly cooking.
