    I think onions like to be stored dry. I think your newspaper wrapping may be keeping them too humid.

    Yeah... Try the food processor, then onto cookie sheets bake @ 165 with the door cracked to dry further then into jars. Its a pepper head's dream come true.

    Those peppers look so pretty.

    I was at the farmers market in Cheyenne with a friend and looking at everything for sale when I walked into a cloud of smoke from the roasted peppers. I instantly started coughing and wheezing and crying and all that good stuff. I have an "intolerance" to bell peppers, if I eat even a small dice of bell pepper I will be sick to my stomach with a headache for a couple of days. It was explained to me that intolerance will make you sick, but allergy can kill you ...
    Usually the chili peppers don't bother me too much, but the smoke was too much and I had to find a place to sit down and wait until I could breathe again. It scared the ja-heebes out of my friend to see me go all red in the face and sound like I was dying.

    It's kind of a hassle, but the best way I ever found to store onions was in stockings (or pantyhose)... drop one in, twist tie it, then another and another twist tie. You want them not touching other onions as even that can cause a bit of humidity between the two that can start rot. Looks weird hanging in your pantry though....

    Pantyhose stuffed with onions: Looks like cellulite on steroids.
