Vidalia Onion Pie

There is only one place that can call their onions Vidalia onions and that's Vidalia, Georgia.  The soil that they are grown in there makes the difference.  This produces a sweet onion that's known as a Vidalia Onion.  The onions are harvested in the spring of the year.  News travels fast where the onions can be located for sell in our area.  Grocery stores will advertise if they have them for sell.  Last year, I remember buying our Vidalia onions at Sam's Club.  It won't be long now and we'll have our sweet onions for recipes.  How about a Vidalia Onion Pie?
