Storing Onions

I planted large onions this year and we have a lot. How do I store them for the winter?

Storing Onions

This is great information, the problem I have now is when to pick them. We have already had a frost and other coming next week. My onions are already a third above ground level (I don't know why, unless this is normal). I'm a first time onion grower in Michigan. So now I can store them, but when do I pick them? Thanks.

Storing Onions

Hello. After first using part of an onion, whether slicing or dicing it, how do you store the rest of the onion? Would I use a Ziploc Bag? Use an airtight container?

I tried both of these procedures but the partial onion (already sliced) either gets "mushy" or just dries out.

I am not concerned about storing a whole onion. Only how to store it after part of it has already been used (diced or sliced). Any help you can give me on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. (03/02/2009)
