We’ve all had a good cry over white onions, haven’t we? Such wonderfully versatile vegetables, they are. These organic beauts add a lovely flavour and depth to whatever it is that you’re cooking. The next time you go to chop some up, try and not cut through the root, as that’s where the oil that makes you cry is stored. No amount of goggles will help!

Our white onions come from Nick Walton's Norfolk fields. He lives on the gorgeous Bagthorpe Farm, not far from the Norfolk coast, and rotates his crops regularly to get a rich diversity of soils, plants and wildlife. He also grows our other onions and carrots at different points in the year, an organic hero.

Storage & prep

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.
