I love using onions in my meals especially in stews, soups, and in salads.

Onion is a versatile vegetable and be used in many recipes.

This year I decided to grow some onions in my garden and I am already harvesting, some of the onions.

Because they are so many I have decided to freeze them.

Freezing onions will save me time as I don’t have to chop onions each time I am preparing a meal.
