Silver skin onions are not only a healthy, but also a very tasty
addition to many recipes. They are very refreshing and low-calory.
Since you can buy them ready-made in jars, they are very convenient
and you will not have to shed any tears over peeling them.
Silver skins are also very popular abroad. Spaniards like to combine
silver skins on a stick (‘banderilla’) with other vegetables as
a tapas variety. It is remarkable that every single country has
own preferences, Scandinavian onions, for instance, are always
sweet-sour. In Britain, however, hardly any sugar is added to
the onions, so
they taste very sour. In France, Italy and Spain silver skins are
not only rather sour, but also very salty. And last but not least,
there’s yet another variety in the Netherlands: bright yellow Amsterdam
onions, delicious with some cheese.
