Fresh Onion Flowers
Choose 50 or 100 flowers
May - June
Onion flowers are clusters of small white blossoms that have a very intense raw-onion flavor with notes of garlic & chive. While the blossoms and the thin stems connecting them are tender, the attached length of thick stem is tougher and people may not want to eat it.
Store onion flowers in their clamshell in your refrigerator.
RECIPES & TIPS
Because onion flowers are so strong, it may be better to use individual blossoms in smaller amounts than a whole head to keep their flavor from being too intense. They can be used to garnish all sorts of savory dishes.
Some edible flowers may wilt or change color when exposed to vinegar, so if using a vinegar-based dressing on salads containing edible flowers, test it on a few blossoms ahead of time and/or add it at the last second.
