Storing Peeled Onions

I use onions almost everyday, so when it comes to peeling them ,it can be quite a chore , especially when you are in a rush. Instead of peeling onions everytime I need them I usually buy about 1-2 kg of onions , peel them, and then chuck them in the fridge . They dont smell , why? because if you leave the tail and top ends intact they dont smell that much.
So here is what I do, first peelt them nicely, use paring knife or a small knife with the pointy end so you can easily slide through the skin without cutting the ends.


Then use a clean ,damp kitchen cloth to wipe away the skin as some onions have a bit of dirt in them.
Leave them in a sunny ledge in your kitchen for an hour .
Place in a plastic container, WITHOUT THE LID!!!.



Then place inside the fridge ( refrigerator) either in the vegeable section or the shelf above it. Why you dont cover it is because If you do cover it water forms inside and the onions turn bad and mouldy and smelly too.
If your fridge does start of smelling place a freshly peeled orange rind inside and that gets rid of the smell.

Ps , I want to thank Aisha, for her comment. Its so nice to get a word of encouragement from a Maldivian. So thank you for your support and also to everyone else who takes the time to visit :).

Going off to Penang for the weekend, hubby has a workshop to attend to , so see you after monday!!!.

  16. Oh I always put em with the fridge with the lid on the but the onions have never gone bad. But maybe thats cuz I use up the onions too fast before they even have a chance to go bad. Hm. Thanks for the tip! Will try this :). Love this blog!
