Onions - Extend their shelf life
- nylon or panty hose (the legs)
Store your whole, unpeeled onions in a nylon stocking., or cut an old pair of panty hose legs.
Put twist ties in between or tie them in a knot, before adding the next onion. I found twist ties a little better, because when I first began doing this, taking an onion out from unknotting it was a pain. When they hang, the knot gets tighter. Twist ties, you can reuse the stocking again..because you might get tempted to cut the stockings inbetween to get them out, if they are knotted...but that's just a suggestion.
Hang them in a basement or somewhere cool and dark.
Freeze green onions in a plastic bottle. Make sure the green onions are completely dry before storing or they'll get freezer burn.
