What are Vidalia onions? This question is frequently heard at American Heritage, as one of our popular Stonewall Kitchen sauces is called Vidalia Onion Fig Sauce. Since I spotted them in the supermarket today, I thought I'd introduce them on our blog as well. The Vidalia onion is a mild vegetable onion that's as large as an apple. Its name is protected, as indicated by the small "R" symbol. It has been cultivated in Georgia since 1930, where the mild winters required for this type of onion are found. It's harvested from April to June, making it available only in spring and summer. It's considered America's favorite onion, and if we had refrigerated containers for transport, I would have imported a few to Germany.
Enjoy your meal!
