Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Our friend, the Onion…….

 

Yellow and white onions can be kept for a longer amount of time than the red ones, as they have a lower sugar content. Store in an open space that’s cool and dry, and away from bright light, which can make them bitter. Don’t store them anywhere that may become damp.
