Onions are very versatile and can be used raw or cooked in almost any dish. Cooking on too high a heat can make onions taste bitter.

Spring onions, green onions, leeks, sometimes garlic.

Dried (or storage) onions should be kept in a dry, dark place for may weeks. Green onions need to be stored in the refrigerator and will last over 3 weeks.
