The humble onion is one of the healthiest foods you can eat!

Raw onions contain Manganese, Folate, Potassium, Phosphorus, Vitamins B1, B6 and C. It has a long list of health benefits, which include helping to balance blood sugar and prevent insulin resistance, being anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal, lowering cholesterol, protecting the heart and blood vessels, improving bone health, acting as a prebiotic, which improves digestion and aids beneficial bacteria, lowering risk of some cancers and helping protect against respiratory illnesses like asthma and the common cold.

I make these Sweet Crunchy Onions in advance and we eat it with most of our meals as it aids in digesting our food and just gives a lovely taste and texture to our meals.
