Storage and Tips

Optimal Storage: Cool (34-55F), dark, and dry

It Sprouted - An Onion that has sprouted in storage is perfectly fine to eat, provided it has remained firm and there are no signs of mold or decomposition.

Too Strong - Soak sliced onions in cold water for up to 10 minutes to reduce the naturally occurring sulfur compounds that give onions their sharp, pungent taste and smell. This will allow more of the sweet flavor to shine through.
