As a child, I remember Granny making me bite into a raw onion to cure a chest cold. I disliked it then but eventually grew to love the taste of raw onions! She taught me how to gather raw onions from the woods behind our house, as well as poke salad, dandelion, sassafras from the bark of trees, and other lessons on food and medicine that nature provides. Part of my daily routine now as a Vegan doing keto is to marinate onions in the finest quality cold pressed extra virgin olive oil along with delicious salt-free spices for a few hours. I eat them raw, sautéed, or caramelized .. depending on my preference each day. They are delicious!
