This next tip is similar to the previous one. Don’t store your onions in the refrigerator anymore. The cold temperature can cause them to become soft and spoil more quickly. Just like garlic, onions are sensitive to cold temperatures and can become moist and mushy when stored in the fridge.
If you want them to retain their firmness and flavor better, store your onions at a cool room temperature. The cold temperature of the fridge can cause the cells in the onion to break down, which can affect its texture and flavor.
Additionally, storing onions in the fridge can cause them to lose some of their natural aroma and flavor. This is because the cold temperature can inhibit the production of certain enzymes and chemicals that contribute to the onion’s aroma and flavor.
