ode to onions (in pictures)

An ode in pictures?

Not sure if that even exists but hey.


Left over onions from last year's crop:

Stripped off the outer leaves and brought them inside:


The bits I didn't use:


Separated the greens from the whites:


Cut the greens very finely:


and sweated them down batch by batch by batch by batch:


then they get all sad looking:


And I added miso and sugar and mirin and got this:
Negi-miso. This stuff rocks! I use it on onigiri, in cooking, on cucumber sticks and just on rice:

YUM!

Then it was onto the whites of the onions and it was masses of slicing again and then into the pickling bucket with soy sauce and chillies:


Overnight it looked like this:


And it just gets better and better as it ages. Yeah.

K's lunch with the products of all this productivity:


negi-miso, soy preserved leeks, two kids of butterbur and the last of the nozawana pickles with some salmon and pumpkin that someone else made. If he survives the salt bomb it should be a pretty yummy lunch.
