Recipes and Freezing Instructions For Red Onions

I recently received about 10 pounds of red onions and am looking for ways to use them up or save them. My mom said they don't freeze well... anyone have any luck with this?

Thanks,

Shan

we have a food dehydrator, we store lots of veggies and fruits that way, by dehydrating them first. once they are dehydrated, you can then freeze them to keep them longer.

They freeze fine if chopped up. I keep bags of onions in my freezer to add to soups, omelets, salads, hamburger helper, etc. I freeze Vadalia sweet onions every year, and make & can sweet Vadalia relish, yummy! I love them so much I bought a Vadalia onion cookbook, lol. :>)

I've found that you can freeze them with great results, provided you don't want to use them raw once thawed. If you are going to cook them or add them into a recipe them you won't notice any problems with texture or flavour. To make them easier to use, chop them before freezing.

Try the Inn chef web site http://www.innchef.com - they were "Pickling" Red Onions today.

When you freeze them do you double bag them? If you single bag the onions does the odor permeate the rest of the freezer goods?

They last a long,long time in a leg cut from your stockings tie a knot between each onion so not to touch each other and hang. Easy to just snip one loose when you need to use too!
