Onions of Idaho and Eastern Oregon

I attended a recent event at Kendall College celebrating products of Idaho. While potatoes automatically come to mind, onions are another common crop in the state as well as Eastern Oregon as the Snake River Valley's climate makes for some perfection in produce.

We sampled some products made with Spanish Sweets that come from that region of rich volcanic soil, making it ideal for growing onions that are mild in flavor and large in size. With state-of-the-art storage facilities, they're able to bring these delicious veggies to the consumers year round.

We tried a carmalized onion quiche appetizer that was quite good along with some of the best French Onion Soup I've ever tasted. For more info, visit www.USAOnions.com.
