I cannot imagine a life without onions. I mean, I couldn't---and wouldn't---even consider eating a hamburger without a generous slice of onion on it. And look at all those dishes that have onion included in the recipe. Why, a world without onions? No, thanks.

Onions were first cultivated around 3,000 BC. Claims regarding their health benefits include the common cold, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, high cholesterol, heart disease, and many more.
Personally, I prefer the Vidalia variety. This particular onion is grown in the area surrounding Vidalia, Georgia (US). It is a wonderfully sweet variety that is heavenly. Close behind the Vidalia variety---in my humble opinion---is the Walla Walla, Washington sweet onion. But, my main point is this---no matter where it is grown, or what the flavor might be, onions are a necessity of life, not to be taken for granted.
Cindy reminded me of what her mom used to tell her when she would go on a date---"Don't eat any onions". But hells bells, if a date is offended by the smell of onions, he/she ain't worth gettin' serious over!
