I love onions there i said it. I sympathise totally with the none lovers but i myself am a lover. There is no other vegetable i know which can be bitter sour one moment yet sweet and sumptious the next. Even though i sympathise with those who enjoy them in salads, i dont personally go down that route. For me there are only two ways to eat onions. The first: slow cooked in olive oil with thyme and basil, salt and pepper. Cook very slowly for about 2 hours. The next is puree. Same as before, but puree with a reduction of cider, red wine, port, more basil and thyme, and some bacon. Puree really fine. Cook for a further hour. Brilliant.
