We have a sure enough Texacannian who recently opened a farm store here in our neck of the woods. He is one great guy, absolutely love him. He has been doing business in Kentucky for a while running "Lone Stars and now he is running his own store:
We had been needing a good farm store for a long time!There have been some stores, but they all have ran on a shoe string. He is fully backed and fully stocked.
I noticed though that this spring he had OHHHH YMMMMM Texas Sweet Onions bulbs.
.
I got 'em and I hope they are the right kind for our area.

I am very excited about them.

My family loves those fried onions -the kind you put on top of Green beans with mushroom soup. Only they like it on everything. They are two dollars a bag too -- rather high. They are really good on Salads.

I hope to make some of them from my garden, instead of just dehydrating them this year. it looks simple. Dip in buttermilk and flour and fry.

I was thinking I would dip them in some kind of rice bran, or wheat bran. Make them somewhat more healthier.

Dappy> where's your Fuji apple thread?

Liquid> What are Texas Sweet Onions.... gotta link? I don't think you should be trying to dehydrate fried onions..... something about storing those is making me nervous. I think those should be fried up fresh then toasted in an over as we need them.

I don't think I had a thread for it; I just mentioned it in another thread....although, I may have created a thread a year ago, but your guess is as good as mine.

I was wanting to do this frying of onions
instead of dehydrating and then freezing "ALL" like I always do.


Texas Sweet Onion -- I always thought were the kind that were sold individual at "Save a Lot"
"Save a Lot" when it comes to onions has Wal Mart beat all to pieces.

But I also imagine that Texas Sweet Onions is not a northern Onion.

Still I am excited about the possibility they will do good.

Dappy> what ever I'm thinking about was more recent than that thread. I think crab apples were mentioned in the thread.

liquid> I dunno what a northern v. a southern onion is. I just learned there were long day and short day onions from reading the back of a seed pack. Oy..... there are times I feel so out of it.

I know it was mentioned in a recent thread, but I don't remember which one, and don't see it in my search.

If you want post it in my original apple thread...I'll find it there.
