Cooking onions makes you either love it or hate it! Depending on the culture to which they belong as a gastronomic heritage but also depending on personal preferences, people eat little or a lot of onions, like me for example.

Cooking onion begins almost invariably with the removal of the outer layers and chopping, smaller or coarser depending on the food you prepare. Then the chopped onion is fried or simmered into oil or lard as a base for the rest of the ingredients you use. Sometimes, raw onions are used as an ingredient for marinating different types of meat, beef, pork, lamb, or even game because the strong flavor of onions blurs the strong taste of the meat and helps the rest of the spices to penetrate better inside.
In addition to the above, let’s not forget the onion that is used in salads in raw form! Most of the time, raw onion wedges are mixed with other vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, or cabbage to prepare extremely tasty and vitamin-rich vegetable salads. Apart from mixed salads, you can also make plain onion salad with vinegar, the Germans being among those who prefer to eat it that way.
