Walla Walla Onions

Walla Walla Onions Last summer my husband and I drove through Washington State, tasting great wines at every stop, but it wasn't bottles we carried home in our luggage; it was Walla Walla onions. These medium-size onions, grown in the southeastern part of the state, are sweet and mild. When cooked (I love them in curries; see Chicken and Onion Curry for a recipe), they turn luscious and even sweeter, but it's almost a shame to cook them, because they're so delicious raw. -Marsha Pederson, Roselle, IllinoisAndré Baranowski
