Aldi had bags of onions — 3 lbs for $0.69 — so I got two.
Then, I let them sit in my fridge for a week or two because I had no idea what to do with them!! My grandmother suggested I chop them up and freeze them.
I tried using my food processor but I thought it chopped the onion too finely. So, I started a chopping assembly line in my kitchen.
- Chop the ends off each onion
- Cut each onion in half, lengthwise
- Peel each onion half
- Cut each onion crosswise, into small slices (like rainbows).
- Stack slices in small piles
- Chop stacks of slices
(I made a video, and I can’t get it to upload. Boo. Any ideas?)
When I was done chopping, I bagged the onions separately for freezing. Each onion gave about 1.5 cups of chopped onion. So, I bagged the chopped onion, one onion per bag, and flatted the bags to freeze.
You can take out a bag and break off the amount that you need if you need less than a whole onion. Just make sure if you’re using a recipe that calls for less than 1 whole onion, you write on the bag how much is left!!
