How to Cook Onions with Their Skins On

Cooking Tip:

When making chicken broth, aside from roasting the pieces of chicken and vegetables, there’s another trick that is often used in some cuisines…

Many Jewish kitchens will use onions complete with their skins on to make a tasty broth with a darker color.

I tried this earlier this week and it turned out wonderfully! I told my mother about it and she figured I just knew that…LOL

Of course, when making a broth, you will need to skim out the chicken pieces and vegetables, even strain it perhaps. So, no worries about eating this tough onion skin. It will be gone anyway.

My suggestion, however, is to wash the onion off before adding it to the broth to be sure there’s no residue that would typically be removed by removing the skin.

Huh! Who knew?

  1. I used to spend long hours with my grandmother outdoors. She had a beautiful flower garden along with her very large vegetable garden…she also grew onions. Though she was a farmer’s wife and had to spend a lot of time helping out with the family business, she made time to tend to both of her gardens. Her vegetable garden was not only a labor of love; it was something that helped them through the winter. The more they could can, the more money they saved when milk production was low and the money was not as good as it should have been.

      Often times, our loves in the culinary world when we are adults were put well into motion by our grandparents when we were young…showing us how to grow, prepare & cook.
