If you are harvesting green onions or purchasing them in the market, I recently found an amazing way to store the onions in my home refrigerator.
I seem to always have an endless battle with green onions if I don’t use them promptly within a couple of days of purchase. The green ends shrivel into weak blades of grass, and my hand-picked green onions can’t be used as I intended in many of my dishes.
So, here is the tip to keep your onions super fresh for weeks. Yes, weeks. I unwrapped these onions after almost two weeks in my vegetable bin and they look as fresh as the day I placed them in there for storage. Wrap in plastic straight from the garden or market. I do not wash the ones from the market at all until I use them. Then, the secret is to wrap that plastic package in aluminum foil tightly. Total preservation.
Amazing and I know this tip will help many of you who did not know the secret. After discarding shriveled onions for more than 30 years, I finally found the proper storage method. This method works for celery too. I do clean the celery before storage.
