  • 1-3 bunches green onions


  1. Cut Green Onions: Add cut green onions to a freezer-safe plastic container or bag. Freeze for 1-2 hours, or until the onions become firm. Give them a toss to separate them into individual pieces and then return to the freezer to store for up to 2-3 months. Use cut green onions in soups, stews, or even frittatas and casseroles.

  2. Whole Green Onions: Cut the bunch in half so they can easily fit in the storage container. Place in a freezer-safe container and store for up to 2-3 months. When ready to use, thaw green onions at room temperature and then cut into pieces.
