I love green onion and chives (chives are the skinny version of green onion). You get that fantastic green onion flavor without the beastly onion breath. Most people who grow green onion have more than they can eat at some point in the season.
Here’s a quick and easy way to preserve them. We enjoy our frozen, organic green onion all year long. Frozen green onion is ideal for use in soups or hot dishes and you don’t have to thaw before using.
How To Store and Freeze Green Onion:
1. Wash your green onions or chives in cold water.
2. Place onions on the counter and pat them dry with a paper towel to prevent freezer burn.
3. Using a sharp knife, finely dice all the green onions/chives and place them in tupperware with the lid or freezer bag. Fill to the top, but don’t pack them down. Pop ’em in the freezer and you’re done. In our family, we recycle plastic tubs from sour cream or cottage cheese :D.
Note: When using green onion, scrape what you need from the top and refreeze remaining onion right away.
