Onions last a really long time--I'm not sure why, but they do. We got about 1,000,001 onions in last week's CSA share and we're expecting storage onions this week, so I decided to do something with what we already had.
Onions are one of the easiest vegetables to preserve and store. All you have to do is put on your kid's swimming goggles (this is the most important step--really), chop up a zillion onions, put them in Ziploc bags, and stick 'em in the freezer.
No blanching, no canning, so swearing, no anger. Just take a look at these:
You can do the same thing with green beans.
These pre-chopped onions would be great in omelets, chili, casseroles, on top of pizza, in pasta sauce...you get the idea.
Now stop it with the excuses. This crap is way easy.
