Add crunch and punch to sandwiches, salads, and burgers with these sweet, colorful onions. We relish them raw. They also add a mellow moistness and flavor to frittatas, pasta primavera, and stir-fries. It's hard to imagine a summer kitchen without a basket of these.
The Black Dirt Region, spanning southern Orange County, New York and northern Sussex County, New Jersey, is home to family-owned farms situated on thousands of acres of deep, richly organic soil — the result of ancient glaciers melting, river overflow and plant decay. The lush valley is best known for its production of the prized "black-dirt onion," as well as other root vegetables.
