My local Aldis had onions on sale this week – 3 pounds for $0.79!! Great stock up price! So, I bought 18 bags = 54 pounds of onions! So, now what? How in the world do you store that many onions until you can use them up without going bad? Well, it’s simply really. Old panty hose! You take a pair of old panty hose, drop in an onion, tie a knot close to the top, repeat process until the legs are full, tying a knot above the last onion. To store, simply hang in a cool, dry, dark place. When you need an onion, simply cut below the last knot and you have your onion! Simple. Easy. Frugal.
Here’s what 54 lbs of onions (minus 4 onions) looks like once they are in the panty hose.
They will hang in my pantry to await use. I may eventually dehydrate some but, for now, they will simply hang in my pantry. Stored like this, they will keep for up to 6 months! Another great reason to take advantage of a great sale!
