we have onions.
lots of onions.
I have pulled them,
and they are now drying from a nail in the kitchen....
Braiding your onions allows them to be bunched together and still have air around them to dry. The braids are great because you can hang them ~ keeping them off the counter, and easily accessible for cooking.
A great DIY that I use to braid onions and garlic is found here at this link.
