Look For

Choose firm, heavy onions with a dry papery skin.  Avoid ones with brown or soft spots or onions that have green spouts.

To Store

Keep onions in a dark, cool location.  It is best to keep them in the mesh bags they come in, or in a basket or colander.  Do not store next to potatoes since both vegetables give off a gas that will cause the other vegetable to rot.

Once cut, wrap the onion in plastic, store in the refrigerator and use within a couple of days.

To Prepare

To prepare, start by removing the dry papery skin.  Score the skin lengthwise in a few spots to be able to remove the skin easily.
