Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh onions
  • chopping block
  • knife
  • ziploc bags
  • baking pan or freezer safe dish
  • aluminium foil
  • fork
  • marker

Alright so you clean your onions, and get started chopping and dicing. Apparently bigger dices are better, they freeze better and you can chop them down to size if you need to when cooking your meals. Place the chopped onion on the baking sheet, cover with the aluminium foil and then leave to freeze for the whole night.

In the morning use a fork to gently free the frozen onion from the pan and then stuff them into ziploc bags. You will find they won’t stick together and are easier to work with later. Place back int your freezer until you need them for pretty much all your cooking needs. Label your frozen onions using the marker.
