Much like it's cousin, green garlic, it is simply an onion that we pick before it reaches full maturity. If a scallion is a baby and a dried onion is an adult, you could think of it as a teenage onion! They have a lovely, mild sweetness and juicy crunch and can be eaten from top to bottom. The green tops are full of flavor and make a great addition to any soup and some folks like to grill them whole until they're cooked through and eat them with Romesco Sauce. It's good to keep in mind that unlike dried onions you get at the grocery store, you should store spring onions in the fridge and eat them as fresh as possible. You can eat them raw or cooked or pickled. If you don't usually like eating raw onions because of onion breath, then give these a try.
