Preserving or Serving Green Onions
This week I dug up and harvested my raised lettuce bed. I always plant plenty of green onions in this bed and so I had a large harvest to deal with. I called out to the Twitterverse for help and got a whole bunch of creative responses:
snarkyvegan I’ve read a tip somewhere to chop em and freeze em in a water or soda bottle then you can pour/shake them on stuff later.
KaizenGarden there is a terrific hot sauce served with fried snapper on the beaches of Kingston Jamaica that uses green onions!

woodlandsmom65 if you have a dehydrator, you could dry them & make onion powder. I didn’t know they would freeze either!?
BG_garden What to do with the onion : PICKLED ONIONS are awesome horsd’oeuvre at parties!
MelissaJBond chopping and freezing in small portions are GREAT to toss in your winter meals :)

greenleanings When I had a bumper crop we ate lots of Mexican & Asian foods. We chopped & put them in everything, grilled them whole, etc.
I made buckwheat crepes with green onion, tomato sandwiches with green onion mayo, and since this has barely made a dent, I plan to freeze some for my winter recipes and dry some in the oven. Thanks to all of my wonderful twitter friends for sharing their green onion wisdom!
