50+ pounds of onions; no storage

Cady | | Dec 9, 2011 04:40 PM

About two weeks ago, a farmer friend gifted us with at least 50 pounds of organically grown onions, perhaps closer to 100 pounds. About half of them are sweet onions so they won't last long.

We've had some great batches of French onion soup, but beyond that - though we use onions in most dishes - I'm at a loss.

Here's the kicker: We live off-grid in northern Idaho. Our freezer space is minimal. At this time of year we can and do use the outdoors as freezer space, but if we're doing any major storage thing, it needs to be stuff that will be used up before the temperatures rise in March.

We're trying to do SOMETHING with these before they go bad, though I guess there is always the compost pile. Suggestions? (We do have friends we can swipe a little electric-run-freezer-space from in a pinch.)
