Freezing Onions

I love freezing chopped onions. Nothing is more convenient when you are cooking a meal to simply open the refrigerator freezer compartment and break off a small section of chopped onion and add to your pot. Already washed , peeled and chopped. Probably the most convenient food I prepare.

  1. That also is my favorite way!
    Always handy, espescially when in a hurry.
    I am now in the process of dehydrating potatoes.
    My dear husband brought home two 50 pound bags and am down to about 20 more pounds to go!

  2. I do this, too. Makes for easy prep. I only have room to keep a quart bag or two at the time, so whenever I run out I chop enough at once to refill those two

  3. A great idea . I never thought of doing that . Have a good day !

  4. Probably my favorite thing to freeze too! I use TONS of them. I either chop them and flash freeze so they separate easily or I'll put them in the food processor, JUST long enough to where there is a tiny bit of juice. Then I freeze them into ice cube trays--once frozen, I'll vacuum pack the cubes to keep them longer (once seal is broken, I still keep them in a freezer bag). Popping out a few "cubes" of onion for soups, etc, makes it so quick and simple!

  5. This is a great idea. Our onion usage varies. Sometimes we'll use 5 or 6 a week, then we may go several weeks without using any.
    I could do this while they are fairly reasonably priced.
    They don't need to be blanched or anything, do they? Just dice and freeze?
    Thanks, CQ!
