We tried Vidalia Onion Relish on…What else…a Wisconsin bratwurst!

A Vidalia onion is a sweet onion grown exclusively in Georgia.  The onions are called Vidalia because of where they are grown; Vidalia Georgia. The growing of Vidalia onions started there in the early 1930’s.  Vidalia onions are sweet due to the low amount of sulfar in the soil in which the onions are grown. The Vidalia onion was named Georgia’s official state vegetable in 1990.
