  1. Walla Walla are delicious large yellow onions that are so sweet. From your blog, it looks like you are raw but if you do cook, they make an amazing soup or onion tart. Unfortunately, I’ve never been fond of raw onions.

    • thanks for your comment. We never did get the walla-walla onions, and I haven’t seen them in local markets, but I am looking forward to finding them. My room-mate, who is Japanese, experiments with raw from time to time, and she showed me what Japanese people do with onions – they slice them, then soak them in clean water, then squeeze the water out. The raw onion taste is gone then, and the texture is quite like lightly sauteed onions, but without the oil. You might like to try this method. I do like the taste of raw onions, and use it to enhance the dishes I prepare, but you might like to try this for salads or whatever else suits your fancy.
