Sweet onions have a shorter shelf life than common varieties due to higher water and sugar content. Thus, it’s important to store them properly. Ideally, sweet onions should be stored in a cool, dark, dry location and spread out for optimum air circulation. We suggest you try placing onions in a clean pair of pantyhose, with knots tied in between each onion, then hung in a cool, dry place. Just snip off below each knot when you need one. If stored properly, sweet onions should last in your pantry 2 to 3 weeks.

For raw cut onions, tightly wrap them and refrigerated to be used within a few days. For freezing, you can chop onion and place in a freezer bag. Onions in the freezer can last of to 12 months before they lose flavor.
