    The Story Behind The Recipe

    Story In the late 1940’s, Senior Onion, as we used to call him, would travel miles to our local market to sell his onions. He swore that the only sure way of keeping colds and flue at bay was a healthy serving of his famous French Onion Soup on a daily basis. During the war onions were just about the only vegetable we could get our hands on, so of course we would buy as many as we could afford – authentic colds and flue remedy or not! This recipe is dedicated to Senior Onion.
