Pink onion from Roscoff crop 2022


The pink onion from Roscoff, from Finistère in Brittany (literally: end of the world), is an absolute "must" for all gourmets, as are the pink garlic from Lautrec, the walnuts from Grenoble or the green lentils from Le Puy. We get our pink onions from Roscoff from the siblings Eric and Tiphaine Quemener from the "Ferme de Kergus". They are genuine Bretons and are among the best producers of this noble product. Her onion braids (braids) are regularly voted the prettiest in the country!

The pink onion from Roscoff is both mild and very aromatic and can be used in a variety of ways in the kitchen: raw in salads or confit, for sauces, soups, pissaladière... Bought as a plait, the onions can be stored in a cool, dry and dark place without any problems until next spring.

The pink onion from Roscoff contains a lot of vitamins A, B and C and was once a popular food and medicine for sailors. Introduced in 1647 by a Breton monk from Lisbon - yes, globalization already existed - it flourished in the 19th century when the so-called "Johnnies", poor farmers from Finistère, brought these onions to England and even Scotland , where they went from door to door offering their wares. They were often only on foot or on rickety bicycles. The nickname Johnnie came about because they often went by the typically Breton names Yann or Yannick, which was too difficult for the British to pronounce.

Rosa Zwiebel aus Roscoff Ernte 2022

Andrea H. (Viernheim, Germany)
toller Zwiebelzopf - gute Lagerung - köstliche Zwiebeln

Der Zopf lässt sich gut aufhängen und daher in dunklen, kühlen Räumen gut lagern. Die Zwiebeln sind vom Geschmack feinwürzig mit einer tollen Süße! Immer wieder gern.
