Onions and Garlic

Onions and garlic can last up to 3-6 months when stored properly.

Keep onions and garlic in a basket or paper bag where air can circulate. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 3-6 months. Never keep these items in sealed plastic as it will quickly cause spoilage.

Additional Storage Tips

Salad greens should have space for air to flow, but also include a paper towel to absorb any extra moisture before sealing and putting in fridge.
