Did you know?

Onions are a staple vegetable all over the world. They’re the key ingredient in everything from French onion soup to Indian bhajis. They come in a huge array of colours, shapes and sizes. No matter how they look, they’ll help keep you on the ball. They’re rich in vitamin B6 and manganese - both of which are needed for healthy brain function.

They’re best stored in a cool dark place with plenty of ventilation. Don’t put them in the fridge, the cold temperature will make the flesh go soft.

Cut onions without shedding a tear:

  • Chill the onion first

  • Use your sharpest knife

  • Switch on the extractor fan

  • Keep exposed cuts against the chopping board
