Gills Onions is introducing a pair of prepared onion products, caramelized red onions and grilled yellow onions, in 8-ounce jars for retail.
The caramelized red onions are fresh sliced onions sautéed until caramelized, then tossed in balsamic red wine vinegar. The grilled yellow onions are made with fresh diced onions and slow-roasted.
Oxnard-Calif.-based Gills Onions is marketing them as toppings for main entrees and appetizers and as an ingredient for salads, soups, sauces or tacos. No heating or other preparation is required.
Both onion products are being sold in California and are ready for nationwide shipping, according to a news release.
“Our caramelized and grilled onions make it even more convenient for consumers to add unique flavor to their meals,” Nelia Alamo, vice president of sales and marketing, said in the release.
