Description

The onion is believed to have originated in Asia, though it is likely that onions may have been growing wild on every continent. Dating back to 3500 BC, onions were one of the few foods that did not spoil during the winter months. Our ancestors must have recognized the vegetable's durability and began growing onions for food.

The onion became more than just food after arriving in Egypt. The ancient Egyptians worshipped the onion, believing that its spherical shape and concentric rings symbolized eternity. Of all the vegetables that had their images created from precious metals by Egyptian artists, only the onion was made out of gold.

Today, onions are used in a variety of dishes and rank sixth among the world's leading vegetable crops. Onions not only provide flavor; they also provide health-promoting phytochemicals as well as nutrients.

Selection

Most onions are sold loose by the pound, although some types are sold in bags or small boxes. Look for onions that feel dry and solid all over, with no soft spots or sprouts. The neck should be tightly closed and the outer skin should have a crackly feel and a shiny appearance. Onions should smell mild, even if their flavor is not. Avoid selecting onions with green areas or dark patches.

Storage

Onions should be kept in a cool, dry open space away from bright light. Onions do best in an area that allows for air circulation. Because onions absorb moisture, do not store onions below the sink. Also, do not place onions near potatoes because potatoes give off moisture and produce a gas that causes onions to spoil more quickly. Spring/summer onions usually store for about two weeks and storage onions for about three to four weeks.

Varieties

Onions came in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes. They are often broken down into three categories: spring/summer, storage, and pearl onions. Spring/summer onions are grown primarily from fall to spring in warm weather areas and have a soft flesh and a mild or sweet taste. These varieties are generally shipped right after harvesting. Storage onions have a firm flesh, dry, crackly outer skins and have a pungent flavor. After a brief period of drying, these onions are stored for several months before shipping. Pearl onions are often called white onions and are densely planted to make the onions smaller. There are no nutritional differences among these onion types.

Onions also come in three colors — yellow, red, and white. Approximately 88 percent of the onion crop is devoted to yellow onion production, with about 7 percent red onions and 5 percent white onions.

Yellow onions are full-flavored and are a reliable standby for cooking almost anything. Yellow onions turn a rich, dark brown when cooked and give French Onion Soup its tangy sweet flavor. The red onion, with its wonderful color, is a good choice for fresh uses or in grilling and char-broiling. White onions are the traditional onion used in classic Mexican cuisine. They have a golden color and sweet flavor when sautèed.

Runescape

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

An Onion is a food item that heals 1 hitpoint when consumed raw[1]. When a player eats an onion, the message "It's always sad to see a grown man/woman cry" appears in the player's chat box.

An onion looks like garlic with a different colour, and its main uses are in Farming and Cooking. Players can also take two onions and five coins to Aggie in Draynor Village to make yellow dye. As she does this, you can see something of a giant magical onion above her cauldron, that will turn into a bottle of yellow dye - you will have to look closely to see this.

Obtaining onions

Players can buy onions from Hudo in the Tree Gnome Stronghold, or from Osvald in the Miscellanian Food Shop of Miscellania and Etceteria dungeon.

Players can also buy onions on the Grand Exchange or by trading directly with other players.

After completing the Fremennik Trials quest, members can buy onions from the greengrocers on Miscellania and Etceteria. Alternatively, they can just steal them from the vegetable stalls there if they have at least level 2 Thieving[2].

Members can grow their own onions using the Farming skill (see below).

Members can gain onions for free from a teak larder in the kitchen of their player-owned house, though they will need level 43 Construction to build it[3].

Onions spawn in the back yard of Fred the Farmer's farmhouse west of the sheep pen in Lumbridge, and in the field north of Rimmington. Players need only pull them out of the ground.

Players can also purchase onions at the Farming shops after another player has sold there, but this is rare since those shops cycle their player stocks rather quickly. Note that since the Grand Exchange update, the Farming shops sell onions at GE prices (when they have onions) but will pay players only a starting payment of 8 coins for an onion, assuming the store has no onions in inventory - the payment per onion goes down gradually as the inventory increases.

You can also find onions in the patch near Melzar's Maze in Rimmington.

Farming

Members can grow onions at level 5 Farming to gain 9.5 experience points for planting them and 10.5 experience points for harvesting them[4]. They need to plant 3 onion seeds in an allotment patch, and wait 35 minutes for them to grow.

Gardeners will look after the onion plants for a payment of 1 sack filled with 10 potatoes[5]. Growing marigolds in the adjacent flower patch helps to protect the onion plants from disease[6].

Members can store up to 10 onions in a sack[7]. They can then use the sack of onions to pay a gardener to watch over growing cabbages or asgarnian hops[5].

Alternatively, members can use onions in a Compost Bin to make compost[6].

Cooking

Although players can eat onions by themselves, their main use is as an ingredient in Cooking. They are used in making ugthanki kebabs[8], garden pies[9], and mushroom and onion potatoes[10] (as well as fried onions and mushroom and onion, used in making a the topping).

They are also used in gnome cooking to make vegetable battas, worm holes, and vegetable balls[11].
