The Delizie di Cipolla Bianca di Isernia (White Onion Delights of Isernia ) are excellent as appetizers and can be eaten alone or on bruschetta;
They are exalted especially as a side dish with salad. They have a sweet and not very pungent taste.
The oil, strictly coming from local olives, can be easily used to season side dishes and not only, releasing all the tasty aroma of the bulb of Isernia.
In recent years, with the abandonment of agriculture and of the Isernia area by young people in particular, the Isernia onion has been increasingly marginalised and risked disappearing if it had not been for the precious work of the "guardian farmers" who have continued to perpetuate this ancient cultivation.

Unfortunately, these farmers, who are mostly hobbyists and increasingly elderly, have not been able to find the right generational change, with the risk that when they die this ancient cultivation will be interrupted and all the delicacies they produce will disappear.
The activities of the 'Cipolla Bianca di Isernia' association and the 'Cooperativa L.A.I' are geared towards this goal: to promote the culture of preserving the Isernia bulb by encouraging new young and not-so-young people to grow the product in question, seeking to create virtuous paths towards the establishment of entrepreneurial agricultural activities.
By buying one of the following products based on white onion of Isernia, you will give the opportunity to continue the cultivation and dissemination of the bulb isernino, as well as allow the continuation of the activities of disabled children of the Cooperative L.A.I.
L.A.I., acronym for Lavoro Anch'Io (I work too), is a social cooperative that deals with the work integration of disabled people.
