Spring Onions

about

With their mild and delicate flavour spring onions, also known as salad onions or scallions, are small, immature onions that have been picked before the bulb has swollen. They are cultivated in the UK all the year round. They have a narrow white bulb and a tender green shoot which is also used in cooking and provides a subtle onion flavour. Look for spring onions with bright, lively looking leaves and firm, clean white bulbs. Spring onions are served raw and cooked. Raw spring onions are added to salads, sandwich fillings and baked potato toppings. Spring onions are a popular ingredient in Thai, Chinese and Japanese cooking and are also often included in quiches, pies, stir-fries and soups.
