I grew and froze so many onions last year, that I have enough to last through next spring!
There are some onions in the garden that must have been so small they were missed when I pulled the crop last summer. They are sprouting! What will these onions do? Will they grow into larger bulbs? Will they set seed? If they set seed, is it worth saving the seed? Should I just pull them up and compost them?
Also - I have some onions that I never got around to chopping and freezing. Some of them are sprouting, even though they are sitting on a table under a covered porch. What should I do with them (other than eating them)?
All these are "Candy" - I think Candy is a hybrid.
It sounds like you just have a big ole' mess of onions!
Just having fun with you girl... It sounds great to me. Onions are one of my favorite things next to Garlic.
After having a restaurant in New Orleans for years, my first thought was carmelized onions. A little EVOO (extra virgin Olive Oil as Rachel Raye calls it) in a pan and stir-frying them is incredible and they condense into no space and can be refroze for future use in sauces. Great by themselves over meats and chicken and great on sandwiches!
I think all Alliums are great in a garden along with annuals and perennials too. The flower heads are great popping up here and there...
Onions are biennial, so both the missed onions or planting last year's bulbs will go to seed. They should be fine for green onion though. There are probably recipes for the onion flower heads, too. Maybe batter and fry the onion flowers and serve with battered and fried squash blossoms. Or, just cut the scapes before they open and used Kiel green onions.
