Valley Bounty: Onions
Most often used as a spice or condiment, onions also do well as the main ingredient in mid-winter meals. Both red and white varieties are delicious when stuffed. Remove onion middles and roast the shells in a covered casserole with a thin layer of water or white wine. When they start to soften, fill them with your choice of stuffing — a mix of goat cheese, greens, stale bread, sage and walnuts is excellent — and roast uncovered until heated through.
