A Guide to Using Onions When Cooking at Our Gainesville, FL, Apartments

Onions are a versatile ingredient, and are used in many different recipes. They can be baked, boiled, braised, grilled, fried, roasted, sautéed, and even eaten raw. But, if you find a recipe that calls for onions, how do you know which kind to use? Onions range in color and size, and it’s important to know which ones will work the best with the different kinds of dishes you create.

Here’s a list of popular types of onions and the best ways to use them:

    • Yellow onion – Finest all-around onion to cook with, and a great addition for soups, stews, and meat roasts
    • Red onion – Perfect choice to eat raw; can be used in sandwiches, salads, and guacamole
    • White onion – Crunchiest onion of the bunch; has a sharp tang that works best in salsas and stir-fries
    • Sweet onion – Excellent option for frying, so is used often for onion rings and to accompany roasted vegetables
    • Shallot – Gives off the most subtle flavor, which makes it a terrific choice for vinaigrettes, egg casseroles, and garnishes

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
