To Our Valued Customers:


There was a recall on fresh whole red, white, and yellow onions imported from Chihuahua, Mexico on October 20th, 2021. Our company did not purchase from any of the distributors named in this incident nor did we purchase product imported from Chihuahua, Mexico. Our onions are grown fresh right here in NV and shipped direct to stores. We do not have any association whatsoever with the parties that have been implicated in this recall. The onions in this incident are not from our company. Peri & Sons Farms onions are safe for consumption.

Our internal food safety standards and practices require that all onions, red, white, sweets and yellows, sold from our farms and packing shed facilities carry a certificate of analysis with negative results for both Salmonella and E. coli. We have provided documentation of our testing analysis for your reference as attachments. See Certificates of Analysis. (COA). Additionally, verification of our food safety certifications can be found here: www.PeriandSons.com/Onions.

Roasted Eggplant with Feta, Tomatoes and Herbs
Ingredients
1 large eggplant
1 small yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 ounces Feta cheese, crumbled
1 1/2 cups store-bought marinara sauce
Splash of dry white wine
4 ounces olive oil, divided
Small handful of freshly chopped basil or Italian parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste
Directions
Preheat oven to 375 F.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a heavy skillet to medium-high on the stove top. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes, or until the onions become fragrant and begin to brown slightly on the edges. Add garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Deglaze the pan with a splash of white wine, making sure to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in marinara sauce and remove from heat.

Drizzle the bottom of an 8" x 8" baking dish with olive oil. Slice eggplant in half lengthwise and make criss-cross patterns across the flesh of the eggplant halves with a paring knife. Place eggplant, flesh side up, in the baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.

Ladle sauce mixture over the top of the eggplant. Sprinkle cheese over the top of the sauce. Bake for 45 minutes-1 hour, or until the eggplant becomes fork-tender. Remove from oven and let stand for a few minutes before garnishing with herbs and serving.
