Selecting and Storing
*Reties iro and adjusts buba*
Okay, see when you are choosing onions, ehn, make sure they are clean, well shaped, have no opening, and have crisp, dry outer skins. Okay! Always avoid those that are sprouting or have signs of mold.
So when you see the ones that have soft spots, moisture, or dark patches, always avoid them, because it can be that the onion hav[f]e decay inside. *squeezes face*
And see ehn, always make sure that the base is whitish in color, and then u can avoid those that have wilted *weakened* or yellowed tops.
For storing, onions should be stored in a well ventilated space or place, away from heat and bright light. They say it is not good to refrigerate onions*covers face*.
Place them in a hanging basket or a perforated bowl with a raised base so that air can pass through underneath.
All onions should be stored away from potatoes, so that they will not absorb their moisture and causing them the onions to spoil more readily.
Store cut onions by placing in a sealed container; use them within a day or two since they tend to oxidize *react to oxygen* and lose their nutrient content rather quickly.
*smiles* What would a kitchen be without the smell and taste of onions filling out the flavors of almost every type of food, sauce and everything there is…*shakes head* no good.
