The onion that ate Pittsburgh …

Smaller than a breadbox, but bigger than baby's head...


I mean, I bumped up to the big box, but had no idea about this sort of thing.

The neighbor girl thought it was a candle.

My 10-year-old said, “Is this natural?”

Neighbor down the street shrugs. “I’ve seen bigger,” she says.

Yeah, but what am I gonna do with this? Any ideas?

Also in the box: Rainbow chard, kale, carrots, eggplants, corn, green beans, cherry tomatoes, tomatoes proper and strawberry. Oh, and Romaine lettuce.

Idea gals? hit me!

caramelized onion jam, of course! (well, that might require a few more enormous onions, but it’s super delicious).
if you don’t want to preserve anything, just make the jam, then swirl it up into sour cream with lots of smoked paprika and/or roasted eggplants for a yummy/quick dip for your carrots or potato chips.

cut in thick rings, put in crockpot with butter (of course) and let it go on low (doing it’s thing). The house will smell like onion soup.
