Red Onions in Abundance - Need Ideas

Hi,

I have way, way to many red onions in my pantry. What can I do with them?

Also, how long do fresh potatoes last in the fridge?

Here's my favorite when I need to use up onion.
I haven't found the Lemon EVOO yet, but I just splash some lemon juice on the onions during browning.

I dont keep potatoes in the fridge, just in a dark, cool cabinet. usually a couple weeks.

I'd caramelize those onions and freeze them.

Make sure that if you are storing your potatoes in the fridge that you let them come back to room temp before cooking them. When potatoes are stored in the fridge some of the starch converts to sugar. It will go back to starch, but only if you bring them to room temp before cooking.

I, too, was going to say French Onion Soup. Caramelizing was another thought and they can be used many different ways.

You can make a delicious lettuce-less salad with those sweet red onions. Just chop 'em up with some tomatoes and cukes. Then toss everything in your favorite viniagrette or green goddess dressing.

.. But my first reaction was Loprainne's jam idea, too.

If you have a dehydrator chop them up and dehydrate them. I do this with onions, peppers, celery and have even done it with tomatoes. Almost anything can be done. I then pick a mixture of the dried veggies and process in a blender to make my seasoning mixes.
