Portuguese onion braids

This week, Natércia from Portugal shared her photos of onion braids (see here for details).



Aren't they gorgeous? The photos were taken in the municipality of Vila de Rei - in the heart of Portugal - where Natércia is from. As you can see, these braids were made with regular-sized onions, not the small onions I chose to braid with, worrying that the larger ones would be too heavy to braid! Hence, you can braid all onions, up to an impressive 20 or so in length (from what I can see from the images), and store them conveniently out of the way by hanging them from wooden beams ... if you have them!

Thank you so much Natércia for sharing your photos with us, and for the Portuguese lesson in onion braiding.
