Kitchen Tip: How to store chopped onions {no more smelly fridge}

Hello there!  Hope you are enjoying your summer as much as we have been.  I have a few new posts in the works for some great summer recipes we've been enjoying.

How to store that leftover chopped onion?  Usually, I wrap it in plastic wrap and stash it in the veggie drawer of the fridge but I can always smell that pungent onion smell when I open the fridge.  And I've had that dreadful experience of the onion imparting it's flavor onto other items in the fridge.  yuck.

The other night as I was chopping onions for our favorite Tostadas I had the idea to stash the remaining chopped onion in one of our mason jars.  We use mason jars for everything including as drinking glasses, love, love, love them!

It's the perfect airtight container.  No more stinky onion smell in our fridge and no more squished and banged up onions.  The glass jar doesn't absorb any odor at all like some plastic food storage containers may.  Go ahead and give it a try.  It's a simple tip, one of those Ah-Ha moments for me.  And I like that we are using less plastic!
