❁ Choose whole onions that are firm and heavy for their size, and have no scent. Look for a dry, papery outer skin. Avoid cut, bruised or sprouting onions.
❁ Yellow onions usually cost the least. Use them for cooking since the flavor becomes sweeter when cooked. Use sweet onions and red onions when you need a mild raw flavor or bright color.
❁ Onion powder adds flavor when cooking. Choose onion powder over onion salt to help reduce the salt in your diet.
