If you're a total foodie like myself, then you know what April means. Hooray for Vidalia Onions!!!! With Vidalia Onions now being in season, it's time to chef up all those recipes calling for sweet onions since Vidalia onions did pioneer the sweet onion world!
Cultivated for more than 80 years by grower artisans, the Vidalia onion is the world’s first sweet onion. Its distinctive taste is derived from the weather, water and soil uniquely found within 20 South Georgia counties. In fact, 100 registered South Georgia growers produce the Vidalia onion crop each year since the perfect combination of mild winters & low sulfur soil, give Vidalia onions their delicious sweet flavor that make these onions the premier onion of many world renowned chefs and home cooks.
When I was a child I literally ate Vidalia Onions like apples! My grandmother always kept them in her kitchen and I would randomly eat onions due to their delicious sweet and crisp distinct flavor, leaving the rest of my family staring at me like I was nuts! If you're not up to biting into a raw Vidalia, Vidalia Onions are also incredibly versatile and add delicious flavor to a wide variety of chef-inspired dishes from salads to side items, dressings, dips and even desserts.
Vidalia Onions are hand planted, harvested and cured each season, making these incredibly sweet, juicy bulbs only available within a limited window from April to August. That's right, Vidalia onions are a seasonal treat only available in the spring and summer months.
To kick of Vidalia Onion season, I thought it would be fun to share a childhood favorite recipe of mine! When I wasn't biting into a raw Vidalia Onion, my parents would make Baked Vidalia Onions. Super easy to make and beyond delicious!!! With only 3 ingredients, even picky ones will enjoy the sweet and savory taste of Baked Vidalia Onions!
