Preparation and Storage
Preparation: Wash onions just before use and peel the outermost layer off before chopping. Once an onion is sliced, it can be stored in the refirgerator in an air-tight container, and should be used within 7-10 days.
Storage: Store onions in a well-ventilated area that is cool, dark, and dry. Do not store entire onions in plastic bags; it is important to use a breathable bag or container.
Long Term Storage: Redwing Onions are a low-moisture variety that can be stored for multiple months if stored properly. Onions should be stored in a well-ventilated bag or crate in a cool, dry location. Store between 32 and 40 degrees F with low humidity, and away from light.
