Hi, I'm Teca Thompson, farm to table chef, and today we're talking about how to identify an onion when it has gone bad so a rotten onion. So here I've selected a rotten onion. As you can see it's got mold on it and it's kind of squishy, not too firm so that's a rotten onion. I'm going to cut it open right now and as you can see from cutting it open, it's got discoloration, should be all beautiful purple and white. So the discoloration and mold pretty much says it's rotten. Just to give you the difference, you can see this onion which is not rotten, it is two toned but that's completely fine. It's beautiful, it's got a nice firm feeling to it with no smushy spots or mold on it. So, I'm Teca Thompson, that's how you identify a rotten onion. Thank you for watching.
