In the wake of the rising food prices food storage has become a prime concern for many people around the globe. There are many food items that are needed in the kitchen almost everyday and who wants the hassle of running to the market every now and then to ensure a regular supply. And even if you attempt to minimize the money spent on such items by growing them in your kitchen garden, you have to brainstorm about ways to store them properly so that none of the items you grow get spoiled.
It’s therefore mandatory to opt for a convenient storage solution that cuts down the risk of spoilage to zero and at the same time makes the food items stay as fresh as when you had bought them. We usually store foods like garlic and onions in open racks which often results in scattering of their loose peels all around the place. We are sharing a workable method for storing these kitchen essentials that will also prevent them from rotting for three months atleast.
Here Are A Few Steps To Consider While Storing Onions, Garlic And Shallots
First things first! Get hold of things like a few large sized thick paper bags or brown paper bags, a paper punch press, a three storey rack, onions, garlic, shallots and paper clips.
Using the punch press punch holes all over the paper bags leaving at least 2 inches of space between them. This will keep the items stored inside the bag properly ventilated.
Sort and clean the onions, garlic and the shallots separately using a cloth. Discard any rotten parts and keep the ones that do not feel firm to touch, aside for cooking on the same day.
Put the cleaned onions, garlic and shallots separately in the bags till they’re half full. Fold the upper end and secure with paper clips. Write the names of items in each bag.
Now place the onion bags in the lower rack, bags of shallots in the middle rack and garlic bags in the topmost rack. While placing the bags make sure that they have plenty of space between them to keep them ventilated.
