@Intrepid,
Maybe we could just start with an Ontario Onion A2K get-together.

It'd certainly be a new spin on A2K-fests.

@ehBeth,
For a special treat my mother used to make herself a fried onion sandwich. Her grease of choice was bacon fat. From a kid standpoint it smelled pretty good but none of us were interested in trying any and she wasn't all that interested in sharing her special treat.

'nother story... my dad did a lot of special event catering. He did things like boat shows, garden shows... convention center type of stuff where he ran the concession. Around 11:00 in the morning he would put a huge pile of onions on the grill and then wink. By 11:15 we were selling lunch. There's just something about the smell of grilled onion that makes you want to eat.

@ehBeth,
Is that "fests" or "feasts?"

I make a dip using fried fresh bunching onions, sour cream and a tin of diced clams.

Set's pretty much figgered out that I'll overlook almost anything if I can smell onions cooking. It's kind of embarrassing. For some women it's diamonds or flowers. For me, it's onions.

It could also be grated onions for latkes. The combo of grated potatoes and onions.

@cicerone imposter,
I've realized that pretty much every A2K get-together has involved a meal or more. The A2K feastival.

Ya can't beat a Walla Walla Sweet onion sandwich. Fresh brown bread, fresh butter, Walla Walla cut pretty thick and salt and pepper.

@JTT,
That Walla Walla sandwich is raw onion? Straight up? Is the Walla Walla one of the onions that's as sweet as an apple?

My uncle used to love raw onion and sardine sandwiches.

One Thanksgiving I made an onion custard where I sauteed the onions for several hours then mixed it in an eggy thing and baked it. It was delicious. I wonder what happened to that recipe........

bunching onions are like green onions but "bunch" like garlic bulbs that you just break apart as you would gloves of garlic.

@ehBeth,
Yup, EhBeth, a good one is as sweet as an apple. As a matter of fact, I was initially gonna say that in my post. I've had excellent Vidalias but I've never had one that comes anywhere close to a Walla Walla.

@dyslexia,
I've never seen them either, Dys. Are the bulbs tiny like, I guess they're called scallions or are they big bulbs?

the nice thing is , when you pull up a bunch, you peal off one and replant it and get another bunch in a few months. I do this year around and so always have fresh onions.

In Germany we used to start the fall season with Federweisser (freshly made wine) and onion cake (similar to quiche lorraine).

@JTT,
Thanks JTT. I'll have to see if I can find a Walla Walla up here to try.
