Gills Onions Rolls Out Ready-to-Use Caramelized and Grilled Onions
The hottest condiments these days are caramelized and grilled onions. Gills Onions, Oxnard, Calif., a market leader in fresh-cut onions, makes it easy with the launch of two new prepared onion products, Caramelized Red Onions and Grilled Yellow Onions, available in 8-oz. jars. Made with the same California-grown onions used in its fresh sliced and diced lines, Gills new products offer the added benefit of their unique flavor profiles as well as the fact that they are recipe ready with no heating or other preparation required.
The Caramelized Red Onions are sliced onions that have been sautéed until caramelized and then tossed in tangy balsamic red wine vinegar for a bold flavor. In contrast, the Grilled Yellow Onions are made with diced onions that are slow-roasted for a flame-grilled taste. Both items make ideal toppings for main entrees and appetizers, such as steak or bruschetta, but also work well when added to salads, soups, sauces or tacos.
“Our caramelized and grilled onions make it even more convenient for consumers to add unique flavor to their meals,” says Nelia Alamo, vice president of sales and marketing. “We know that today’s home chef is pressed for time, but they still want to serve up healthy meals that their family and friends will love. These new prepared onions will help them do that.”
