White onions

are a very common ingredient in our diet

The yellow onions is characterized by its golden or yellow-brown skin and in the color of its white-greenish interior, they are usually very present in our diet, its level of sweetness is higher than the others and that is why it is usually ideal to eat very well cooked. It stings a little more, so raw would not be too good. We fry it or caramelise it to create authentic savoury pies full of flavour.

It's a great way to make a savoury pie
