Tips
  • Pantry time shown for storing onions assumes storage in a cool (45° - 55° F) dry area with good air circulation; if such an area is not available, refrigerate onions.
  • Do not store onions near potatoes, as the chemical reaction will speed the spoilage of both.
  • To freeze onions: (1) Peel, then slice or chop onions; (2) Place in airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags, or wrap tightly in heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
