Robbie’s Produce Tips: Sweet Vidalia Onions
- Choose Vidalia onions that are flat. Generally speaking, the flatter, the sweeter.
- They should feel heavy for their size.
- Vidalia onions tend to have a flakier skin, which is okay, as long as it’s dry. If a young onion isn’t cured enough, it will be a little wet and slimy. Stay away from those as they will go bad quickly.
- You may not use the entire onion in one sitting, so the best way to store the unused part is to wrap it tightly with plastic (or in an air-tight container) and store it in the fridge. It should last at least a week or more.
