The Technique


Scallions, fall under the Allium genus, with characteristics closely related to other bulby items including garlic, shallots & leeks. They are often referred to as spring onions or green onions. Scallions are unique in that the bulb has yet to develop fully making both the white & the green portion ideal for use in raw & cooked recipe applications. Many species such as A. cepa, A chinense & A. fistulosum  may be called scallions with typical characteristics forming in approximately 14 days depending on the variety. Scallions are a garden favorite in the kitchen as they add instant flavor to a variety of recipes. Use them with fresh wedge salads, potato salads, pasta combinations & as the base in dressings for big flavor & beautiful color. They are the ideal instant garnish to sprinkle over dips & appetizers or provide quick flavor to summer-fresh pea relishes as well. The good news is that once they are sliced, no additional preparations are necessary making them an effortless choice. Learn how to store & use this versatile onion style.

How To Store & Trim Scallions

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. Green onions may be stored in the refrigerator up to two weeks after harvest.

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 such as Buttermilk Cole Slaw by cutting the tips & the ends away, then thinly slice them. A freshly sharpened paring knife yields a cleaner, neater result when shaved onions are desired while a chef knife makes preparations fast & effortless.
