Spring Onions Info Sheet
Download the pdf below, there's lots of info on how to prepare and store Spring Onions plus 6 recipes (that also use lots of other Goldbush Micro Farm Veges!)
We grow two kinds of spring onions: white with green tops and purple with green tops, which may have a bulb formed at the base. Spring onions have a milder flavour than other onions and can be used in many ways.
How to store:
There are two ways to store spring onions, either place in a container in the fridge, or stand the spring onions in a few cm of water in a tall container and leave on your bench, (or cover loosely with a bag and place in the refrigerator), remember to refresh the water every day or two.

Pull the outer layer of skin off and cut the spring onion roots off at the base. Also trim the green tops where they discolour or are damaged. Use the white portion and the green section that is light-colored and tender.
How to Freeze:
Use the flash freeze method. Chop the spring onions to desired size. Place them into a resealable freezer bag and freeze. You can also chop the green tops into 2cm sections and freeze those separately. They are great for Asian soups and stir-fries.
Recipes include soup, pancakes, cornbread, grilled and pickled spring onions
