Potato (or Multiplier) Onions

In February we will having a class on growing Potato Onions by Kelly Winterton who developed large multiplier onions here in northern Utah! These onions grow like garlic, with 2-8 onions cloning from each onion. The onions are 1-3" in size and they store well. You can plant them in the fall at the same time as your garlic, or in the spring. Kelly will be bringing seed for us to grow out, which we can then grow as clones.

If you are interested in getting seeds, please read this booklet now by Kelli to learn about them.

Rockin' Rampicante

I'm falling more and more in love with the versatility of Rampicante!  Tonight I made my favorite lasagna recipe, substituting mandalin sliced Rampicante for the pasta.  So yummy!  Peel the Rampicante, cut into 4-6" pieces or as long as you can slice on your mandalin lengthwise, the thickness should be the same as lasagna noodles, do not precook - stack in your lasagna raw, and use in your favorite lasagna recipe.  Cooking time should be the same as your recipe calls for, I cooked mine at 350 degrees for 50 min.
