How to (Easily) Freeze Green Onions11:51 PM
I have seen so many cute tutorials describing how to store green onions in the freezer. Most of them involved using clean, empty water bottles -- but this method really didn't work so so well for me. Here's my alternate method, which works well for those of us who like BIG pieces of green onion and aren't in the mood to mess with a funnel.
1. Pick your green onion tops and put them in a bowl or colander to sort them. (I usually find pieces of grass and other vegetation mixed in -- especially when the kids do the picking.)
- Your onions will have to be chopped finely to fit in the mouth of the water bottle
- You will need a small funnel or a homemade one made from paper (shown below)
Sports drink bottles have wider mouths and are recommended over the water bottles. (We don't drink them at our house, which is why I chose to go with the juice containers -- of which we have plenty!)
We have not had fresh green onions for a month, and I have enjoyed putting my frozen onions in anything cooked. So far, they've been delicious in omelets and on top of homemade baked nachos! What do you use frozen green onions for?
