Scallions, also known as green onions, are native to Asia where they have been cultivated for nearly more than years. Scallions are one of the most commonly used ingredients in Asian cuisines. Overtime they have gained popularity and can now be found at grocery stores and farmers markets all over the world.
Scallions grow in clustered bunches of smooth, elongated dark green leaves with hollow central tubes. The base of the leaves are white, firm and bulbous with small roots growing out of the bottom.
Scallions are sweet, grassy and are more mild than large mature onions. They can be added raw as a garnish or cooked and added to dishes such as soups, rice, stir-fries, the possibilities are endless.
We recommend storing your scallions upright in an inch of water and changing the water every few days, or with the roots wrapped in a damp paper towel in a non airtight bag.
