Scallions (also called green onions, bunching onions) are a delicious pungent topping to almost anything you make! Their blanched white base and slender, hollow green leaves and tender texture are as attractive as they are appetizing!
A warming tonic for the digestive system and supports healthy blood circulation, the heart, large intestine, and lungs. Light anti-fungal and antimicrobial action. Contains precursors to vitamin A, B complex, and C when eaten raw. Also contains some calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
Scallions are tender and cold tolerant, so they keep best in the fridge in a produce bag. Use within 3-4 days.
