Final update for the true onions: All the cooking is done. I have another wonderful pot of caramelized onions. The smell really wasn't too bad once the cooking finished. Since we've got a huge orange tree and Costco sized vanilla extract, I put a big handful of orange peels, a couple generous swishes of vanilla extract, and some water in a pot and let it simmer. The house smells great. I will never forget you onions out there.
Update 2: After doing a majority of the cooking in the instant pot outside, the onions are now on my stove. Luckily I just got a new range hood less than a week ago so that's on full blast. Guess what we've decided to include in dinner tonight? Hint: it's onion rings.
Update: Day 2 is upon us. I just finished cutting up about 8 quarts of onions. I have an instant pot coming up to pressure on my porch as we speak. A fan is blowing in the direction of my cutting station to the window. I immediately washed all my cutting equipment and wiped the counters with a mix of dish soap, water, and lemon essential oil. I promise I’m not a crazy essential oil lady, I just like the smell and it makes a good cheap all-purpose cleaner. See you all in about 2 onions for another update?
Edit: Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. I have decided to postpone the onion marathon until tomorrow due to me being drugged up on Benadryl and not wanting to enter an onion-induced coma. Tomorrow is a new onion. Wish me onion. Onion.
That's right. Salt and vinegar are the superior chip. Sour cream & onion chips just have an overly sweet yet salty taste that is just overwhelmingly disgusting. Barbecue chips leave your mouth feeling dry and bitter because of the awful taste. Salt and vinegar are just a perfect combination of flavors that is just overall better than other chips.

Sour Cream and onion chips have a light, smooth, creamy yet slightly sour and tangy taste to them that makes them irresistible.
Barbecue chips, on the other hand, have a disgusting flavor that is hard to explain. They are either too spicy or less spicy, and more often than not they have this charred texture to them that make me feel like I'm eating burned chicken. At least not as bad as vinegar though.
I followed Chef Jean-Pierre's recipe, except instead of port and sherry I used vodka and chardonnay. This was probably in my top 3 soups I've ever eaten, and I've never made anything taste this good before.
I’m so sorry but I needed to tell someone this because its absolutely hilarious and ridiculous, I’m dying laughing. Like how do you grow up thinking that??? What happened that led him to that conclusion??? Absolutely incredible. That is all.
Edit: I just wanna say that I understand people may not know what tequila is made from, but to specifically think it comes from onions ??
Instead of delivering me 3 white onions, Instacart brought me 3 3-pound sacks of white onions. So, I've got 9lbs of onions and that's quite a bit more than I needed!
I know if stored properly, onions can last a few weeks, but even then, I don't see my household going through that many. Does anyone have any suggestions for recipes that use up these onions? Thanks, all!
EDIT: RIP my notifications. I am now drowning in onions and ideas for how to use them! Thank you so much, all! Going to put these to good use. First up, Hachee!
Following the events of the Capitol Siege, a video of "Elizabeth from Knoxville" has been circulating. In the said video, she was seen rubbing a piece of onion on her eyes. People would defend her and claim that it was ice, and still some would claim that it was folk remedy to tear gas.
With that aside, please enlighten me. Does that really work? If it doesn't, what does?
Edit: I tried to Google this, found no conclusive scientific resource. It was just that I seem to have lost all my brain cells from watching that video that even I can't trust my own judgement anymore.
