Regardless of the fact that I can make one bunch of green onions last for a pretty long time, my husband decided to plant a plethora, yes a PLETHORA, of green onions in our garden this year. The result? This project showed up on my to-do list this week!
A few hours of cleaning, separating, and clipping away with scissors gave us this:
We will keep these in the freezer and take out whatever we need for recipes for as long as they last us! I froze green onions for the first time when I had several regrowing on our windowsill prior to us moving last summer. I had no easy way to transport the jar so I chopped them up, filled an empty plastic water bottle, threw it in the freezer, and simply shook out whatever I needed whenever I needed it. It was fantastic. Sadly I did not have enough water bottles for this year's harvest but I think the zip lock bags will do!
