You can learn a lot about someone's cooking habits by the way they prepare onions. Onions are of the most essential ingredients in cuisines around the globe and can impart such great flavor into an array of recipes. Onions require determination as well as patience to maximize their true potential.
One of my favorite vegetables to consume in the fall are brussels sprouts. Although they're seemingly just a tiny cabbage, they are a fun and versatile brassica to consume in large quantities while they last. I've been trying to grow them for years, but can't seem to get it down, so thankfully there are plenty of local farms around who get it right.
