This year, I grew a bunch of onions. In fact, the onion every other vegetable ratio is a little askew. I grew 2 different varieties of onion as well. I grew red onion shallots, yellow onion shallots and onion multipliers.
I'm constantly cutting back the greens. I use some every day in cooking and I give some away to friends whenever they drop in. It is at the point where I need to harvest a bunch of greens so they don't go to waste and there is no way I can use them up quickly enough.
It's time to freeze the greens.
I filled up a large container with some greens I had cut back. As you can see I barely made a dent, you can also see that I need to get out there and do some weeding. Don't mind the empty spaces, I pulled the odd plant out as needed. Most of them will mature into full grown onions though.
- Washing the green onions in a solution of vinegar and water, to free them from dirt and other bugs that may have been carried inside.
- After the veggies have been washed, dice them and place them on a baking sheet or parchment paper on a baking sheet and lay them in the freezer for a couple hours or until half frozen.
- Afterwards, place the green onions inside a freezer bag.
- Don't forget to mark the date that they were prepared and frozen on the bag.
