    Dear OP

    Try to keep them away from moist. Keep it in dry and hot place.

    Keep onion and potato in separate containers, away from sunlight, in a dry place.
    have seen now a days certain potatoes we get are sprouting, not all. I snip potato sprouts and use them on priority basis.

    Hi,

    I was old by some one that we should not cut and keep onion for more than 5 mins because it will start absorbing all the bacteria in the surrounding air. Is that so? if yes, then what should we do for morning hurry-burry cooking?
