Scallions are also known by the name “green onion” and are in the same family as leeks, onions, chives, and garlic. They have a mild onion flavor and are hearty in both cold and warm temperatures.
Store scallions unwashed in either a plastic bag or damp towel. They will keep for one week. Be careful when storing scallions next to other odor sensitive foods such as bread and mushrooms, as they may absorb some onion-y flavor.
Wash scallions under cold water, Remove roots and strip off any wilted leaves. Both the white and green parts of the scallion can be used, and taste great when added to soups, stews, salads, stir fries, potatoes, and more! Scallions can also be grilled- simply remove the roots and 2 inches from the tips of the leaves. Grill until tender.
