Spring Red Onion

$1.50

Though spring onions resemble scallions in appearance and flavor, they’re actually just very young storage onions—yellow, red and white—that are pulled out of the ground at an earlier date, when they’re still thin-skinned and mild in flavor.

Description

Though spring onions resemble scallions in appearance and flavor, they’re actually just very young storage onions—yellow, red and white—that are pulled out of the ground at an earlier date, when they’re still thin-skinned and mild in flavor.

Grilled spring onions are so lovely—charred yet sweet, tender but crisp—that they’re one of the most prized dishes in Catalunya, the mountainous region on the Spain-France border. The exact type of spring onion grown in Spain isn’t available here, but the idea remains the same: lightly oil the onions (with tops), grill over charcoal until soft, and serve with romesco sauce. Spring onions also take wonderfully to pickling; try them spooned over hot dogs as an alternative to sauerkraut.
