I know they claim to be sweet, but onions ain't!
Is there any way, short of cooking one, to tame one down? I mean get rid of most of the gas and bad breath, still have flavor :)

Haven't had one in about twenty three years but when we lived out in Spokane used to grow Walla Walla sweets I sure thought that was a good onion I just love them on hamburgers and sandwiches.

We grow 1015 onions every year and they are sweet, nothing hot about them at all. Sit down and eat a whole onion with cheese and sweet tea.

Try them Vidalia onions from Georgia-fantastic and sweet too. Only onion I ever saw that can be eaten raw and don't bring tears to eyes nor lousy breath....great for cooking too...use mine fer steaks and making Cajun Bar-B-Q sauce.

The sweet onions are great raw but if you want the onion flavor in what you cook, the hotter onions come out best.
Try frying some of that thick sliced liver with thick slices of a fairly warm flavored onion on it. Can't be beat. If you like liver, that is. No one is neutral on liver. They either love it or they hate it. I love it.

We find the Red onions to be a little tamer. The
grocer often calls them Sweet Onions. A lot of
times I buy a small bag of the smaller white onions. I cook them in the MW with diet margarine
on them, little salt and pepper! Less punch to
the small white onions (I think).
