Keep it Fresh!

Fresh whole onions are a cooking staple in many households throughout the world. It can sometimes be a challenge to keep the onions fresh until needed. Follow the steps below to store whole onions for up to six months and maintain freshness.

- Purchase your choice of whole, dry fresh onions at the market. Remove any shoots or dry, flaking skin and loose matter.

- Take a washed pair of used or new pantyhose and place the onions into the feet.

- Tie a knot in the pantyhose above each whole onion. Repeat this process until both legs are full or you have inserted all the onions.

- Hang the pantyhose in a cool, dry and dark place, such as a pantry, closet or cellar. When you need an onion, simply cut the hose right below the end knot.
