Green Onions (Storage + Cooking Tips)

Storage

Green onions are onions that have been harvested young, usually before they develop a bulb. They have a milder flavor than mature onions. Green onions are a living plant, so the best way to store them is in a jar with enough water to keep the roots wet. You can keep the jar in the refrigerator or on the kitchen counter, just make sure to change the water every couple of days. If the outside layers start to get slimy, peel them away as needed.

Preservation

To preserve green onions, you can freeze them simply by chopping to desired size and placing in a freezer-safe airtight container or plastic bag. Keep in mind that they will lose their crunch when defrosted, so plan to use in dishes that require cooking.
