Waitrose exclusively launches tearless onions today

Crying in the kitchen has become a thing of the past as Waitrose is today exclusively launching a variety of sweet onion that doesn’t reduce cooks to tears.

Sunions are the first tearless and sweet onion variety, ideal for those with sensitive eyes or when cooking with children in the kitchen.

The mild flavour makes them perfect for use in cooking while they can also be used raw in a salad.

Paul Bidwell, Buyer Manager at Waitrose, commented, “We understand how a-peeling tearless onions are to our customers which is why we’re delighted to launch Sunions in selected stores and via Waitrose.com from 18th January.

' Ideal for taking the tears out of the kitchen, the sweetness of this type of onion lends itself perfectly to a variety of dishes, from salads to hot meals.”
