When buying onions, you want to choose the ones that are clean, well-shaped, and that have no opening at the neck. The necks of the onions should be tightly closed and should not have a thick woody center. The onions should be firm with crisp, bright, dry, and a shiny outer skin with a crackly feel. The base of the onion should be whitish and measure about two to three inches. Avoid the onions that have soft spots and damp or moldy patches as this is an indication of bad quality. Sprouting onions should also be avoided as they indicate age and poor storage. However, if the sweet onions in your pantry have sprouted, you can use the green sprouts as a substitute for scallions. There should not be any dark powdery patches under the skin of the onions as this is an indication of mold that may spoil the flesh. Onions should have a mild smell. As for storage, dry onions can be stored for several months. Whole onions should always be stored in a dry, cool, well-ventilated place, where the onions will last for about four weeks. Avoid refrigerating onions as this will turn them soft. Onions absorb moisture, so they should not be stored below the sink. Onions can be stored for later use. The onions should be wrapped in plastic or placed in a tightly sealed container and refrigerated for use within 2 to 3 days. Slimy or discolored onions should always be discarded.
