I tried some last night in the process of chopping it up for our chilli con carne and it's FOUL. It tastes as bad as it smells. I was expecting it to taste more oniony, I think. I could still taste it 10 minutes after spitting it out. Ptooey.
Thankfully after an hour of boiling in associated meat and vegetable juices, it didn't actually taste of anything. :)
Did some Christmas shopping last night and got a few things for people, so that's something. I'm hoping to make a dent in the rest of it next Wednesday, though.
