The Best Way To Store Half An Onion 

Wrap It: Place the remaining half of the onion cut-side down on a plate or in a container. Wrap the exposed cut surface tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. This helps to seal in moisture and prevent the onion from drying out. 

Use an Airtight Container: If you prefer not to use plastic wrap or foil, you can store the onion in an airtight container. Make sure the container is just large enough to accommodate the onion to minimize exposure to air. 

Refrigerate: Store the wrapped or containerized onion in the refrigerator. The cool temperature helps slow down the enzymatic activity that causes onions to spoil. 

Use It Promptly: Even when stored properly, a half onion will start to degrade after a few days. Try to use it within 2-3 days for the best flavor and texture.

Optional: Use a Onion Saver: There are specialized onion savers or containers designed specifically for storing half an onion. These containers often have a lid that can accommodate the onion snugly, helping to maintain freshness. 

Avoid Storing in Plastic Bags: Storing onions in plastic bags without proper ventilation can lead to moisture buildup, which can cause the onion to mold or spoil more quickly. 

Use fresh herbs as garnishes to add color and flavor to your dishes. Sprinkle chopped herbs over soups, salads, grilled meats, or roasted vegetables just before serving. This simple addition enhances the visual appeal and taste of your meals.
