The Gimenez brothers grow our red onionsin the Almeria region of southern Spain. The warm sunny climate, good soil and lack of frost provide the perfect conditions for what we call the ratatouille vegetables - peppers, tomatoes, aubergines and courgettes. Jose and his brother Miguel have a great deal of growing experience and are known as aubergine experts within organic circles, so much so, they regularly offer help and advice to other organic growers.
Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.
To avoid weeping buckets when it comes to chopping time, follow these tips:
- Chill your onions in the fridge before slicing - the colder they are, the better
- Use a sharp knife - blunt knives burst more of those tear-inducing onion cells
- Slice under a trickle of water - it helps wash away the pongy vapours
- Wear swimming goggles
Store your onions in the fridge, avoiding dampness, or in a cool dark larder.
