The Most Eccentric Way To Store Onions Just Might Be The Best
By Christina Garcia
While onions should be kept away from potatoes and apples and stored in a cool, dry, and ventilated area, you need the mighty pantyhose to keep onions fresh for up to six months.
Pantyhose are soft and sheer, so they won't damage your produce and allow onions to breathe. Recycling pantyhose is also an inexpensive and environmentally friendly storage option.
Onion-in-hose enthusiasts suggest tying the hosiery in a little knot after each orb to keep it separate from the next, which saves time when the hose is ripped open.
Once onions are in the pantyhose, hook or peg them in a dark place on the wall, or let them rest somewhere with airflow. To use them, snip your onion free from its pocket.
