AFTER READING THIS YOU’LL NEVER THROW ONION SKIN AWAY EVER AGAIN!

Onions are one of the most commonly used vegetables in all world cuisines, which speaks a lot about their unique taste and numerous health benefits. Yet, all of us throw away the onion skin before adding it to our meals.

Well, we will today persuade you to never do it again.

Multiple studies have shown that the onion shell is high in antioxidants, even more than the onion itself, and it significantly boosts overall health.

The brown outer layer is a rich source of antioxidants, dietary fiber, and flavonoids, which promote skin health.

Additionally, the onion skin is high in a potent pigment known as quercetin, which prevents clogging of arteries and reduces hypertension, has powerful sedative properties, and treats insomnia. Furthermore, It has powerful antibacterial, antioxidant, anticancer, and antifungal qualities.

The main ingredient in the skin of the onion, quercetin, is a potent flavonoid and antioxidant which destroys the main culprits for cancer, free radicals.

Studies have shown that the skin is rich in insoluble fiber, which supports the proper peristaltic movements of the colon.

Furthermore, the insoluble fiber eliminates the accumulated toxins from the intestines, regulates the pH values, and prevents the formation of cancer cells.

The incorporation of the onion skin into the diet will lower the risk of:
type 2 diabetes
cardiovascular diseases
gastrointestinal problems
obesity
colon cancer
The skins can be added to various stews and soups.
Also, we will provide the recipe for onion skin tea which will be a great way to enjoy all these benefits:

Initially, store the skins in a glass jar. Then, pour boiling water over several onion skins, cover, and leave them to soak for 15 minutes. Then, strain the tea, and drink a cup of it at bedtime.

Note:
The use of onion skins is not recommended for pregnant women and nursing mothers.

Always use the right onion:
Sweet Onion: Best for onion rings, gratins, roasted vegetables, and frying.
Red Onion: Best for eating raw, making guacamole, salads, and sandwiches.
White Onion: Best for salsas, chutneys, stir-fries, and are the crunchiest onion.
Yellow Onion: Best for general cooking, meat roasts, sauces, soups, and stews.
Shallot: Best for vinaigrettes, egg casseroles, garnishes, and is the mildest onion.

Rub Canola/Olive Oil on your knives before cutting onions to prevent your eyes from tearing up.

Did you know that you can wrap peony buds in a newspaper and put them in your refrigerator for up to 3 months? When ready to use, cut the stem a few inches off the bottom and put them in a vase of water. They will open up in a few hours. So now you can enjoy fresh peonies from May - August.

If you see these hanging in your trees, remove them before the spring! This is a bagworm cocoon full of hundreds of eggs. If they hatch, they can defoliate the tree, and nearby trees, and can cause significant damage. They prefer evergreens but will attack almost any tree. Be on the lookout!
