More about Onions…….

If you only need a half an onion, use the top half first, because the root half will store longer in the refrigerator (it won’t sprout)

Potatoes hate Onions……………..

Potatoes hate onions, at least until they’re cooked together. Onions should never be stored with potatoes because moisture from the onions can cause potatoes to sprout. Onions also release gases that will alter the flavor of potatoes.
