Select bulbs that are hard and dry with no soft damp patches. Avoid onions that are sprouting.
Store with the skin on in a place with plenty of air circulation. Onions will keep for at least a month.
Peeled onions should be wrapped in plastic and stored in the fridge for 24 hours.
Tips & Tricks:
In macrobiotic cooking the five flavours must feature in each meal to balance the palate. They are; sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty. Interestingly, onions are the sweet part of the meal as they cook and sweeten.
White and brown onions are both good to use as the base for casseroles. Onions are also delicious baked or caramelised. The longer they are cooked the sweeter they become.
