Sweet Onions

How to Select Sweet Onions

Sweet onions range in color from white to yellow and are usually a bit squattier than yellow onions. Choose onions that are firm, heavy for their size, and free of bruises.

How to Store Sweet Onions

Wrap each sweet onion in a paper towel and store in your refrigerator’s crisper drawer, with the vent closed. Do not store with potatoes.

Sweet onions can also be frozen for later use. First, peel and chop the onions. Spread onion pieces evenly on a baking sheet and place in the freezer. Once the pieces are frozen through, place them in a zip-top bag and store in your freezer. Because some sweet onion varieties can only be grown in certain regions, they are only available certain times of the year. Freezing sweet onions is a great way to ensure you can enjoy them year round.
