On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a picture and just a few words.
I store uncut onions outside of the fridge (my cold laundry room is perfect for this!).
But once they’re partially cut, I store them in the fridge, and for a while, I couldn’t figure out how to do this in a waste-free way, mainly because onions are so odiferous.
A disposable plastic bag creates waste, so I prefer not to do that, but putting the onions in a reusable container made the lid stink, even after trips through the dishwasher.
So, I’ve been storing my cut onions in a glass mason jar (This is a wide-mouth pint jar, which I find to be a really handy size.)
And the onions DO make the lid stink-there is no question about that. That’s why I used a sharpie to label the lid, which means I will never make the mistake of using it on some other kind of food.
(Remember when I accidentally used an onion lid to make yogurt??)
If you wanted to store an onion for a long time, this wouldn’t work because it’s not air-tight enough to keep the onion from drying out. But I use onions almost every day, and so mine never live in the Mason jar for long.
