Awaji Island Tamaneggi

So who cares about onions as much as I care about tomatoes – I do. I almost always have a box of onions, mostly white which I frequently use. From ancient times up until the 12th century, Awaji Island was known for its special status as a producer of food for the Imperial Court. The onions grown on Awaji have a high sugar content and wonderful aroma. Cooked over a hibachi, they have a much milder bite than onions grown elsewhere, and feature soft fiber and are juicy.
