Chop up some onion along with carrots and celery and sweat them down for a mire poix then freeze them in recipe size amounts.

Over Abundance of Onions in the Near Future, can i do this ??

Bolas posted a recipe for onion goop a few years back. Basically a bunch of sliced onions and some butter in the slow cooker, fill it to the top, cook until carmelized, then package and freeze. Use for onion soup or whatever.

Or you can do what I do with my overabundance of apples: wait until the neighbors are asleep, then drop off bags of produce on their doorsteps.

I tried Bolas's recipe using just 1 sweet onion in a small crockpot.
(Oh no, not another crock!)
Anyways it turned out fantastic. Not goopy at all.

When it was done by the morning, I chopped it up. Set it aside while I made chili. I took the chopped onions lined the bottom of a cast iron skillet and made an upside down style cornbread side.

My guys devoured it more than my home made chili!

I was at a garage sale once and the lady having the sale had panty hose a nickel a pair. I was so excited (having read how to store onions in the legs.) Boy, did I get the strange looks from other shoppers!

What is onion jam, and how is it different from caramelized onions. I guess you could make some and find out, it might freeze good too.

Larry, you were in New Orleans a while ago. Make up some batches of the "trinity" and freeze for cajun dishes. Or a soffrito for Italian cooking.

Onion jam is just that. Jam. It has a lot more sugar in it than caramelized onions. Great combination with something salty like cheese.

Yes indeed, I bet you might have gotten some strange looks, Whiska!

For onion jam, as Rock said, it's just carmelized onions with sugar. Try Bolas's recipe for onion goop, take some out and stir in some sugar, honey, agave, or other sweetner.

Or, you could pull those young'uns and grill them. Just clean them off, oil them up, and lay on the grill rack while you're doing something else.

Onion jam can be just caramelized onions and sugar, but it can also include other flavors. I think adding herbs and balsamic vinegar would take it over the top.
