Freezing or Refrigerating Onions
I have a bag of small onions and possibly 1 bag at my moms I have a basketball game next sat the 19 and I need to mince or finely chop all these onions before they go bad. They are all for on top of hot dogs at the concession room. I need to do this tomorrow as they are at the point they might sprout soon. Will all these raw onions keep in the fridge for a week or should I freeze them and how do I freeze them.
If you decide to freeze them be very careful to wrap them well in a sealed container. My father basically destroyed our ice maker by freezing a bunch of chopped onions and they're flavor seeped into the ice maker so all our cubes tasted like onions--only a pleasant flavor in a bloody mary.
They'll turn mushy If you freeze (and then thaw) them.
They should last fine if you keep them cool -- even if not in the fridge.
Edit:: According to website at the link below, onions are best stored in dark at 35-45 degrees F. So fridge probably is the best.
