Kitchen Hints: The Three Most Common Onions you need in your kitchen | Fran Berger

A friend of mine told me about this 7-onion soup that she had the other day. She said it was so good and so tasty that she wanted to figure out how she might make it at home. Then she paused and admitted, “I had no idea there were seven onions!” Actually, there are a lot more than that. And I actually know of 11 of them. Some of those are a tad obscure. If you love fine restaurant dining, likely as not, you’ve had most of them on your dish at one point or another. But before the exotics are the three most common types of onions that EVERYONE knows and everyone uses.
