  • I love onions! I didn't know these facts about the red ones and now that I do I will be incorporating them into my eating plan! One way to enjoy an onion is to remove the outer paper like skin and and wrap in foil and put them on the girl like a baked potato and cook until a fork can insert into it! It becomes soft and sweet and delicious! - by MEWHENRYSMAMA
