Storing Onions

After previous problems with some moldy onions, because they touched in storage, this year we used several old pairs of tights. Pop one onion in, right down to the toe, then tie a knot above it. Continue until you've filled one leg, then do the other leg. Hang on a nail in a cool dry place.


We have done the same with marrows. One per leg in my daughter's too small tights. Our garage looks like a spare part factory, particularly with two marrow legs in bright blue tights, but they are keeping well so far!

Editor's Note: Marrows are known as summer squash or zucchini in the U.S.

I have never had a problem with onions molding. I just leave the green stems on and tie them in a bunch, staggering them a bit. I store them in my basement. I am still using onions from last year.

It is hard to tell. Ours always gets moldy and gross.
