The 'Sweet Spanish' onion was grown in the U.S. at least as far back as 1916. 'Yellow Sweet Spanish Utah' is from that early type, producing large, 3"–6" globe-shaped bulbs with amazingly mild, sweet flavor. A long-day variety, it grows best in states north of the 37th parallel. Utah designated this onion the state vegetable in 2002. Caramelize onions for the perfect patty melt condiment.

Dry them in the garden in the sun for 2 to 3 days, lightly covering the bulbs with straw, or the tops of other onions to prevent sunscald. Cure onions for 3 to 7 days in a dry area with good air circulation. Once dry, cut the roots to 1/4", and the greens to 1" to create a seal, preventing decay.
