Savory onions are a fixture in most kitchens. Fresh, delicate onions are available beginning in June. Later in the season larger onions appear. These are often dried for storage, and will be available all winter. Find Maine-grown new summer onions and storage onions at farmers’ markets, farm stands, and grocery stores. Store them in a cool, dry, dark place. (Keep your onions well away from potatoes, though, or gases from the onions will make the potatoes sprout.) Ask the farmer about flavor differences and cooking suggestions.
