Onion snow...sounds kinda funny doesn't it. Let me tell you, it's one of my favorite things! I used to get an onion out and chop and cry every time I needed just a bit. Of course I didn't always need the whole onion so I started putting it in the freezer so it would last a bit longer. Then one day I saw Rachel Ray grating an onion on a box grater for the juice. I thought to myself, Why don't I try that with my frozen onion? My family isn't big on onions but I know that they pack big flavor so I use them a lot. Now I am able to "shave" the onion off on my micro-plane grater and get snow. When I put it in whatever dish I'm making it just melts and leaves all it's yummy-ness. (Yummy-ness is a word, isn't it? Yes, I believe it is!) This is a very sneaky way to get my family to eat onions without realizing it. Give it a try!!
