Scallions are fresh young onions identified by their slender shape and mild flavor; both the bulb AND greens are used. While part of the same species as the common bulb onion, scallions – also called “bunching” due to the fact that they grow in clusters – can be grown year-round, and never form a true bulb. Locally grown by Lehne Farms LLC in Roseburg.
To keep scallions fresh, store them in the fridge, in a jar with about an inch of water. Place a bag over the greens and secure with a rubber band to keep them from wilting, and change the water every day or two.
