Have you heard of braiding onions? It's sort of like French braiding hair: take a dozen or so onions that still have their stalks attached, and, starting with three, gradually work more in as you go. The result is a beautiful, natural chain of onions that can be hung in your kitchen and taken from as needed.
Why Braiding Onions Is Actually Better
Braided onions aren't just aesthetically pleasing; the technique of braiding and hanging them provides better air circulation around the onions than storing in a bin. However, if you aren't using the onions right away, hang the braided chain in a cool, dark place to preserve them.
Have you braided onions or seen braided onions before? The same can be done with garlic and shallots!
