Crops & Varieties: Scallions (Green Onions)

Young onions with long, flavorful green stalks.

Lots of scallions growing in a hoophouse.

Quick tips

Use as you would chives: chopped into a salad or as a finishing touch on any number of hot dishes. They’re best if minimally cooked or raw.
 
Add scallions to any pickles you might be making. They add a great depth of flavor.
 
Use in any savory baking you might be doing - the stalks are flavorful without being physically substantial, so they’re great in savory muffins, crepes or breads.

Storage

Rinse and wrap in plastic in fridge - will keep for up to five days this way.
 
You can also place them in cold water in a vase or pitcher away from sunlight - change the water every other day to keep them fresh for two or three days.
