From The Garden

Scallions

Scallions are a garden favorite in the kitchen as they add instant flavor to a variety of recipes. Toss the sliced onions into fresh, leafy salads, cold potato & pasta combinations & dressings for big flavor & beautiful color. The good news is that once they are sliced, no additional preparations are necessary making them an effortless choice. Learn a few pointers to make kitchen tasks quick & lovely.

Although scallions are available in your local market year round, they are typically planted when the ground is cool. As the soil begins to warm, the scallions begin to take shape in the garden & are ready for a spring harvest. If a milder flavor is desired in recipe applications, choose younger, smaller bulb groupings.

The Technique

Expect the white portion to have a sharper flavor so many times recipes may call to omit it for a more balanced flavor as is the case of Scallion Vinaigrette. Trim scallions before using them in recipe applications by cutting the tips & the ends away, then thinly cut them. When I worked in the restaurants, several chefs used razor blades to slice them with precision into a collection of shaved green onions. Although certainly not necessary in this case, I find that a freshly sharpened paring knife yields a cleaner, neater result as opposed to a chef knife.
