Spring Onion

onions_spring-mature_feat

Spring onions can be mature green onions or immature regular “cooking” onions. Their bulbs can be anywhere from cherry-size to almost full-size. Spring onions are typically milder than regular onions but stronger tasting than green onions.

Preparation Tips

Use young spring onions with tender greens as you would green onions; more mature spring onions (larger bulbs, tougher greens) should be trimmed and used as you would regular onions.

Storage Tips

Store spring onions in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the fridge. They last longer than scallions but will not keep as long as mature, cured onions.

For easy peeling, drop cipollini onions in boiling water for 20–30 seconds to loosen the thin skin from the onion flesh.
