Introducing the STAR of the show... Peri & Sons' Sweetie Sweet® Onions!

Sweetie Sweets® are truly nurtured and cared for – rather amazing, isn't it? They are each hand-harvested and cured at Peri & Sons Farms and available mid-July through December. Sweetie Sweet onions are also available in USDA Certified Organic. We made not just one but TWO Sweetie Sweet Recipes. So, let's get cookin'!

Sweetie's Onion Dip

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large Organic Sweetie Sweet® onions finely chopped
  • 1 cup organic sour cream
  • 2 ounces organic cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons white-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped chives
  • Salt and ground pepper to taste
  • Whole-grain chips, for serving
  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium and add onions. Cook stirring frequently until onions are golden brown.
  2. Set aside to cool. In a medium bowl combine sour cream, cream cheese, vinegar and the chives. Gently stir in onions.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill dip for at least 1 hour. Serve with chips.

Caramelized Onion Filos

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 package of filo pastry sheets
  • 12 oz of ripe camembert, divided into 6 pieces
  • 6 teaspoons cranberry sauce
  • Salt and pepper to season
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400°F
  2. Melt half the butter in a pan and cook the onions with the sugar and vinegar over a low heat for 25 minutes or until the onions have caramelized. Allow to cool.
  3. Cut the filo into approximately 24 squares
  4. Layer 4 sheets one on top of the other, making a half turn each time to form a star shape.
  5. Brush each layer with melted butter as you work. Repeat with the remaining pastry to make 6 stars.
  6. Place a piece of cheese in the centre of each pastry star and top with the onions and 1 teaspoon of cranberry sauce.
  7. Draw up the pastry to enclose the filling, pinch well to seal. Brush with melted butter and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Serve straight away.
