Cutting onions is the worst part of prepping a meal. I absolutely dread it every time. So when I read this post about freezing onions by Once a Month Mom, I made a mental note. And then promptly forgot about it. Because I have the world’s worst memory.
Anyway, we went to do some shopping at BJ’s this past weekend and I picked up a large bag of onions because the price was right. When we got home, that post came flooding back to me and I had a moment of inspiration. I was going to chop that bag of onions and freeze them!
All you have to do is peel and quarter the onions, throw them in a food processor, and pulse until they’re the size you want them. I did about 3 or 4 onions at a time. I then bagged 1/2 cup servings in snack bags and threw them all in a large freezer bag.
Here’s what I’ll do differently next time though. The onions froze together in a large clump, so if you don’t want to defrost them first before using them, you should probably scatter them on a cookie sheet first and freeze them that way. Then, after they’re frozen, you can scoop them into small bags. That’s the best way to freeze blueberries and strawberries also.
Have you ever frozen onions? How did it work out for you?
