In the lead up to an election there’s always plenty of talk about what hits the average Kiwi hardest in the pocket.
At the moment (August) that seems to be the rising cost of staple foods, including fruit and veges.
Onions are a staple ingredient in my kitchen. My bean spectacular – as I like to call it, but otherwise known as Chilli Con Carne – lacks flavour and fullness without them. Can you tell I’ve been watching the cooking channel lately?
I recently brought some onions described as "bunching or pickling" onions. What is "bunching" and do the onions need any special care?
...just before winter in my tunnel house and they’re looking fantastic. So now they’re ready for harvesting and my question is – can red onions be stored in some way?

So this month’s article will focus on growing, and making a delicious Thai style salad using pak choi, onions and carrots. All three vegetables are easy to plant and maintain – perfect for those with little time but who enjoy eating homegrown food.
