What is the best way to store whole onions?
Sam is a trusted home cook.
One trick used to store valdalia onions for long periods of time is to put them in panty hose, tie a knot in them..and add the next onion. Then hang them in a dark closet (preferably one without clothing).
You snip off each onion as needed and the knot keep the next one from falling out.
My Grandmother used to do this but I don't for lack of panty hose.
cool dark place and separate from potatoes. I've heard that potatoes can speed up the rate at which they rot. I keep mine in a basket in one of my cabinets that I have dedicated to onion storage.
Sam and ATG - you've both nailed it! (as usual). :)
I can see me going to store to buy panty hose. "I'm using these to store onions, no really, seriously..I mean...oh.."
Sam -- I have lots of used-but-clean pantyhose I don't wear anymore now that I'm retired. Send me your address through Food52 messaging and I'll be happy to mail a few out to you!
