It’s an easy mistake we’ve all made: stocking up on potatoes and onions only to find them, already sprouted, in the pantry where we stored them. You really thought you would use them in time. We get it, and we have good news. You can still stock up on the root veggies for grab-and-slice simplicity when you’re cooking; you’re just missing a key tool for keeping them fresh--pantyhose.

Strange as it may sound, pantyhose are the perfect storage device for your onions. But please, buy a fresh pair. All you need to do is slip an onion into the foot of the hose, tie a knot, and slide in another. Continue until you’ve filled up the hose, and then hang this storage system in your cool, dark pantry or basement. Your onions will stay dry, extending their shelf life and keeping them fresh for up to six months.
