Glazebrook won £1500 ($2560) for his onion. He also holds world records for gargantuan potatoes, beets and parsnips, undoubtedly evidence of some kind of nefarious pact with the subterranean world. One question remains: What does one cook with over 17 pounds of onion? A gigantic sofrito? An XL deep-fried onion flower?
In case you're curious, the Yorkshire Post has a strange video of the Flower Show at which the new world's biggest onion record was announced. Only in England!
