These whole roasted onions are seasoned with sweet balsamic vinegar and fresh thyme. The long roast time leaves them soft and buttery, almost melting in your mouth with each bite.
I’m basically bi-polar when it comes to onions. There aren’t many other foods I find more disgusting than raw onions. Ugh, gag, gross. That raw onion taste just lingers for daysssss. That said, there aren’t many other foods I love more than sweet caramelized onions. I actually had to make an onion jam for a freelance project recently and have been putting it on all.the.things. ever since.
A few weeks ago, I got the opportunity to visit Minkus Farms, a local onion farm as part of the New York State Grown & Certified Program. Minkus Farms is one of the many New York produce farms joining in on this new program that will be launching in the spring of 2017.
