Green Onions... and how to save them for later
Did you know you can freeze green onions for later use? Every time I've bought green onions in the past they always went bad in my produce drawer before I had a chance to use them.
I can't remember where I saw it online a few days ago, but someone froze freshly sliced green onions in a plastic soda bottle in the freezer and simply poured them out straight onto a dish when they were called for in a recipe. And why hadn't I thought of that? I love the flavor that green onions add to just about any dish, but I didn't use them often in the past because they always went bad so quickly!
So this week I bought two large bunches of green onions, chopped them finely and put them in a plastic bag to freeze. I can't wait to throw them on an omelet or a baked potato later this week!
Do you use green onions a lot? Share one of your favorite recipes that uses them!
