How to Store Onion

Cool and Dry Place: Store onions in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight. A pantry, cellar, or basement is ideal. 

Mesh Bags or Baskets: Place onions in mesh bags or baskets to allow air circulation, preventing moisture buildup and extending their shelf life. 

Hanging Storage: If you have a mesh bag or pantyhose, you can hang onions in a cool, dry place. Tie a knot between each onion to keep them separated. 

Onion Bins or Racks: Utilize onion bins or racks specifically designed for onion storage. These typically offer good airflow to keep onions fresh. 

Paper Bags: Store onions in paper bags, which absorb excess moisture and help prevent sprouting. Avoid plastic bags, as they can trap moisture and promote rot. 

Check for Spoilage: Regularly inspect stored onions for signs of spoilage, such as soft spots, mold, or sprouting. Remove any spoiled onions to prevent them from affecting nearby ones. 

By following these storage methods, you can extend the shelf life of onions and enjoy their freshness for a longer period.
