Welsh Healing Onion


"I understand the big food companies are developing a tearless onion. I think they can do it - after all, they've already given us tasteless bread.”

  2. oh my goodness! i haven't heard of a healing onion from anyone else before! we had a plant we called a healing onion that my mother kept for years and years. i SO regret not starting a bulb of it for myself. it worked wonders at pulling out slivers, drawing out infections from sores. magical cure-all for scrapes and wounds. i SO want one of my own!!!

  15. No tears then :-)
    I put on safety glasses and don't cut the roots off . that seems to stop the weeping.
    Still, it does one good to shed a tear or two at times.

  16. I haven't heard of a healing onion. This one look like a very thick chive. Are these related to leeks? (being Welsh and all)

  26. Love onions in everything I make. It's true though, onions now are tearless, specially the ones I get here in the UK.

  28. Genie -- a lovely moaic -- wonderful colors. I'd love to know more about the plant too! The quote was priceless. (My house often smells like garlic or onions, so I guess I haven't been purchasing the new modern scentless kind ;>)
