COOKING
Gently braising onions will “carmelize” them which means it will reduce their acidity, thereby increasing the concentration of their sugar content. In short, they will taste sweet. Adding a bit of white wine like a chardonnay will really enhance the sweetness.

RAW USE – A great tip !
If you want use in raw onions in salads, in sandwiches and in any dish where raw onions are called for but find them overpowering. Reduce their acidity by soaking sliced/diced/chopped onions in water with a teaspoon of sugar. Steep the onions for a couple of hours. Drain and dry as desired and serve. Sweet and satisfying.
