I am sure that you remember that we visited this produce stand outside of Naches in mid August, and I impulsively bought a bag of Walla Walla Sweet onions.
I have never successfully used a bag of these onions because they do not store very well and have always rotted before I could finish them. But I was determined to make it through this bag. It started on the same trip when I made Jumbalaya with them.
I did give some of them away on the trip, but this is the bag when we got home.
I found the site 10 Ways to Enjoy Walla Walla Sweet Onions! With this we grilled onions.
I also made Southern-Style Green Beans from my Hometown Favorites cookbook.
With the leftover ham bone I made Slow Cooked with Ham Hock from the 10 Ways to Enjoy site.
Then we made Onion Cheesies, a recipe from my grandmother.
I made Cheese and Onion Enchiladas.
I made Pico de Gallo using our tomatoes and peppers too. This is what was leftover.
I made Winter Root Refrigerator Pickles. This also included our carrots, parsnips, beets and rutabaga.
I made Steak Fajitas with them,
I made Pork Carnitas last night for dinner.
Here is the very last onion.
I used it tonight making turkey pot pies with it.
So we did it! Only a couple went bad. I had them in the refrigerator initially, but it was too moist for them so we kept them on the back porch. It was a warm and dry this late summer so they were happy there. We also made a Traditional Yankee Pot Roast, Foolproof Crispy Onion Rings, French Onion Soup, and Grilled Pork Shish Kabobs with grilled onions. These were all quite good, but I cannot find photos of them.
I enjoyed finding recipes to use them up. So now it is kind of sad that I don’t need to try to find recipes for them. But there is plenty in the garden to focus on using (squash, beans, parsnips) so I will switch my focus to these instead. Thanks Walla Walla Sweets. It was fun.
