on a vaguely related note (mine are stored in a basket in the pantry), what can you do with them when they *are* sprouted? i know that several other members of the allium genus have quite attractive flowers, but does anyone have any stories about growing their uh-oh onions?

I love cooking with wine...sometimes I even put it in the food... fireweaver.wordpress.com

They're still useable up to a point.

I keep mine in the fridge too, usually in the net bag they came in. They keep nicely.

Don't put the apples next to them in the crisper drawer. Not a good flavor for apples.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

I keep mine in a cupboard in a ventilated plastic bin - garlic is stored in a separate bin on top. Keep them away from potatoes though - I've heard that gets nasty.!

I keep both my onions & garlic in wire & bamboo slatted baskets in a dark, cool back corner of my kitchen counter. Any leftover cut raw onion is sealed tightly in a small plastic bag & put in the vegetable crisper in the fridge, where it remains good (if it lasts that long) for about a week or so.

If whole, best stored somewhere dark and cool.

If sliced, wrap in plastic tightly and refrigerate.

If wet, pat dry on washcloth/towel before storing, if any parts are soft, cut them off!
