This variety of white-skinned onion has a delightfully sweet, mild flavor and thick rings – making them of great choice raw on sandwiches, salsas and salads, as well as battered and fried for onion rings. You can spot Sierra Blancas by their large, round shape and thin glossy skin, and they are typically harvested early in the season and available fresh. Compared to yellow onions, white onions tend to be more mild and tender, though you can certainly substitute them for yellow onions in a pinch.
White onions are especially popular in Latin American cuisine, so choose Sierra Blancas from Elkstone Farm for your next batch of huevos rancheros, salsa, refried beans, or pozole soup. Thanks to their mild flavor and crisp texture, Sierra Blancas are also delicious raw when tossed into salads, thinly sliced on your favorite sandwich, or scattered over pizza.
Whole onions are best stored in a cool, dry, dark and well-ventilated area. Peeled onions can be stored in the fridge for 7-10 days, while sliced or cut onions can be refrigerated for 5-7 days.
