I’ve spent a lot of my gardening and farming days braiding onions and garlic. While I find onions harder to braid than garlic, it’s still a lot of fun and produces a gorgeous, edible bunch to hang in your kitchen or pantry. Since both onions and garlic need to be hung to cure after harvest, braiding them makes the bunches more presentable. Oh, and there are several braiding techniques printed on the web. Check this link out for one way to braid onions.
