    Hardly a day goes by here without an onion in the pan, but my favourite is this: take 5 pounds of onions and about two pounds of beef, preferably a cheaper cut. Dice the onions, fry them gently in butter until soft, add the diced beef, a bay leaf, two or three cloves, a decent sized piece of mace, lots of freshly ground white pepper and add water or stock until the onions are covered. Simmer very gently for at least three hours. Season with salt and some worcestershire-sauce and serve with floury potatoes. Tastes even better if you turn off the heat after a couple of hours and eat it the next day.

    I don't know how to cook without onions. It is the start of everything we cook. This is why I keep a row of green onions and a row of vidalias in the garden at all times. And, I grow a whole bed of Spaniards and reds in the Spring and again in the Fall. My favorite is at the end of each season to cook a whole pot of French Onion soup served over homemade French bread and topped with our home grown goat cheese. Especially in the Fall when it starts to get colder. Mmmm...
    Garlic is another favorite of ours. But, it's harder to keep growing here, but a few dozen heads of garlic on the grill in the summertime doesn't last long here, especially when we cook minted lamb.

    For delicious simplicity I find it hard to beat a thick slice of Vidalia or Walla Walla sweet onion between two slices of buttered bread.

    Hunter: Try this one next time you've got the grill going. Thick slice a sweet onion, slather it in peanut butter,wrap in foil and toss on the coals. When it feels a bit soft, unwrap and enjoy. It's not really peanut oil frying but, then again, it is.

    Tip" This is a great way to do franks for a change of pace.

    one more griller.

    slice a big onion into thick quarters, make a boat with aluminum foil and place the quarters in the foil like a ball...place a spoon of real butter in between the slabs, lather the whole onion up in hot sauce and complete the wrap up...place on the grill.

    you'll {almost} slap yo' mama.

    I love the onion flavor. However, I do not like the texture. I've tried many ways. Caramelized, baked, raw; I've tried onion rings, bloomers, etc.. just not for me.

    However, I do like onions when minced (even diced are too large). I will occasionally buy an onion, pop it in a blender, puree it, and jar it in a mason jar in the fridge for all of my cooking.

    I tried chopping an onion real fine and mixing it in with my Balkan Sobranie. Didn't do much for the flavor.

    Did you saute the onions first? That ruins the aroma.

    And in the spirit of the post, wild onions found in my yard are happily cleaned and eaten. I love all forms of them!

    I wonder what this would be like. "Wild onion tobacco" has a nice ring to it, once you get past the WTF factor.

    Last time he did this I said I was going to ask if he did it again. You beat me to it.

    Jorchamp, why have you joined a pipe and tobacco forum to keep raising long dead food threads? What's your angle buddy? My curiosity is nagging at me.

    Jorchamp, there is no rule about necrobumps. You may resurrect any thread you like. But, when it happens often in one day, it floods the thread wall.
    You're OK with checking out our old conversations. It's kind of nice to see some posters that I haven't seen in a while.

    I see that the dandelion leaves in my yard are turning red. Fall colors. Think I will dry some and smoke them... I love onions, but smoking them seems wrong.

    Yesterday while bushogging my pasture, there is a spot near a little coulee, stream for you Northern guys that always is thick with wild onions, when I hit that big patch with the hog, the smell was so lucious I just thought of gumbos, étouffée, jambalayas, made me so hungry I almost shut it down and went to the kitchen.

    Ramps... I have not even thought of those in years. I used to dig them up in East Tennessee when I lived there. Now I have a craving for them that is impossible to satisfy.

    Just read where chefs were buying ramps in a city and the cost was ridiculous. Reminded me of the first time I saw Morrell mushrooms for sale. Will always remember getting them for free and cooking them as a kid.

    @Stan. The Pb&HR is the real deal. I promise. Try it, The raw onions sandwich is really good too just slightly less gobsmacking, just cut it finely and go easy until you know how much spice you can handle. There is some crazy alchemy going on here.

    Honestly, I debated giving away my sandwich secret, but hey ‘it’s the season ....it’s not early, right?

    The Pb&HR is the real deal.

    I swiped a roll out of the oven last night while the lady was distracted with Thanksgiving cooking and made a Pb&HR. That was amazing! I proceeded to swipe five more rolls!
