Enjoy the Vidalia while you can…its harvesting seasons is short – but did you know that there are other types of sweet onions out there to enjoy? The sweet onion is defined by its low sulfur content and higher water content than pungent onions. Many consider the Vidalia king, but did you know the Bermuda onion is also a sweet onion? How about Walla Walla from Washington State, or the Texas 1015 (also known as the Million Dollar Baby as it took just over one million dollars to research and develop it). Others include Pecos, Sunbrero, Carzalia, and Sweetie Sweet, to name a few. SC Sweets are from my home state of South Carolina, grown in the peanut belt. When the sweet onions can be found, I make my Peach-Vidalia Relish. If you ask real nicely, Lula’s for Lunch…and More! Catering will stuff a chicken breast with Goat Cheese and drizzle a little relish on top (thank you Debby!) Please enjoy this picture of it placed atop a Dauphinois Crostini!
Biting into a fresh, sweet, juicy peach is one of summer’s greatest pleasures. But did you know that peaches are also a superstar in the nutrition department?
They’re low in calories, contain only a negligible amount of fat and are loaded with vitamins and minerals. Also, despite peaches’ sweet flavor, they’re relatively low in sugar compared to many other fruits, and their robust fiber content helps minimize any quick spikes in blood sugar.
Lula’s for Lunch…and More! Catering loves utilizing the peach in the summer – we love to pair it with lavender, and almond, as well as make salsa and chutney, and let’s not forget CHAMPAGNE!! You’re looking at our Peach-Lavender Parfait and our Homemade Olive Oil Crostini topped with Brie and our Peach-Vidalia Relish.
