Potatoes are edible tubers, available worldwide and all year long. They are relatively cheap to grow, rich in nutrients, and they can make a delicious treat. The fibre, vitamins, minerals, and phyto-chemicals it provides can help ward off disease and benefit human health.
Onions have been cultivated for centuries for their characteristic, pungent flavours and for their medicinal properties. Onions can vary in size, shape, colour, and flavour. Flavours can be sweet and juicy to sharp, spicy, and pungent, often depending on the season in which they are grown and consumed.
