They are beautiful, but especially very affordable at this time of the year, yet it is necessary to know how to keep them fresh if we want to buy a large quantity!
First, onions should stay away from the sun and moisture. Light can easily make them bitter. A good place to store them: your garage! Onions are better dry, cool, ventilated and ventilated areas.
If you cooked only half of your onion, know that it stays fresh very well in the fridge.
Place it on a paper towel, cut side down and pack it in a plastic bag, as tightly as possible. You could also wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in your vegetable drawer.
You usually store onions and potatoes in the same place! This is a serious mistake, the onion will absorb moisture from the potatoes and cause them to mold.
A cut onion can be stored for up to 30 days in the refrigerator and up to 26 months in a freezer in a ziploc bag.
