Vidalia Onion Soup Recipe
There's no question that the star of this recipe are the Vidalia onions, which help to give this soup even more flavor. As the official state vegetable as well as an official trademark owned by the State of Georgia, Vidalias thrive in the rich, low-sulfur soil of southeast Georgia. Praised for their sweet flavor and consistency, these treasured onions start popping up in markets around the country in April and appear throughout the warm growing season. The natural sugars in Vidalias make them a perfect candidate for French onion soup. It's important to spend a good bit of time caramelizing the onions to develop their sweet, nutty flavor.
