Americans throw away nearly half their food due to spoilage. This means we are buying more food than we can use before it goes bad. The solution? Use more fresh fruits and veggies in your meals and become a food preservation ninja.
We use this simple trick to preserve our onions so that we never have to worry about whether or not they will start to mold before we can use them. PLUS it makes cooking later in the month SO easy.Whether I'm making a soup or mexican food, it's super convenient to have pre-chopped onions ready to throw into whatever I'm cooking.
Step 1: Cut each onion into quarters and remove the hard outer peel.
Step 2: Load the onion quarters into the food processor.
Step 3: Pulse the food processor until the onions are chopped to the coarseness you prefer.
Step 4: Fill a silicone muffin pan with 1/2 cup portions of diced onions and freeze. Once frozen, pop the onion balls out the muffin pan and store in a gallon size freezer bag.
Just keep your bag of onions in the freezer and throw your onion balls directly into whatever you are cooking.
