Every now and again my husband and I have a "prep" day in the kitchen, usually a Sunday, but not always. With only two days off and so much to get done, we try to have one day where we simply play. As I had previously mentioned we were given a large bag of onions and garlic. Plus we already had 4 large yellow onions in our own pantry. Assessing the volume of produce and ways we might want to use it in the future, guided our processing methods for this group.
The garlic was a very easy decision, just peel and freeze. Peeling garlic is a stubborn job at best. Garlic is sticky! But here is an easy method that works quite well. Then just grab a peeled clove from the freezer and start cooking, so easy.
Moving on to the yellow onions, I wanted to try my hand at caramelized onions in the slow cooker. This takes a while, but your house will smell absolutely wonderful, and then you will have caramelized onions to put in the freezer for future deliciousness!
And now we have red onions to dice for the freezer. Plus a secret kitchen tool to help once they are frozen.
