Scallions are also known as green onions. They are most often seen in TTCF's CSA boxes and market stands in the cooler seasons of winter, spring, and fall and have a long thin white section that does not bulge out like a spring onion. The have a mild onion flavor that is not as strong as a regular onion, and the whole scallion is edible, so use those lovely, vibrant green parts as well!
STORAGE: Remove the rubber band from the scallions and store them upright in a jar filled with about an inch of water. Cover the whole thing with a plastic bag and put them the refrigerator. Be sure to put them somewhere where they won't get knocked over. Stored this way, scallions should remain crisp for at least a week!
