Cipolla di Cannara

Cannara, close to Assisi, has a history of onion growing and even today there are still customs and traditions closely related to the cultivation of this crop.

This is demonstrated by the local onion festival held during the annual harvest, when visitors can taste a wide assortment of foods made using onions, and watch how  onions are braided for easier to store and use There is evidence of the therapeutic and gastronomic uses of onions dating from the 17th century, when they were used to prepare soups of turnip, chard or peas. All these uses live on today in Umbria, which is full of recipes celebrating the Cannara onion.
