How to Freeze Green Onions!

I love getting fresh produce from Robby's parents so when he walked in here recently with a lot of kale and a lot of green onions I was happy and am I going to do with that much green onion?????  SHEESH!

Well...I hate wasting anything so I rinsed the dirt off them and then soaked them in water and vinegar for about 15 minutes, rinsing again.

Next?  I removed all the ends and dead bits.

Now?  Chop 'em up.

Next?  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, add the green onions and put in the freezer for a few hours. (Same as you do for individual meatballs.)

Then...remove from freezer grabbing bottle of Russian Standard vodka while you're in there and make a 3 olive dirty martini as reward for all that chopping.

Add onions to Ziploc bag and return to freezer!  Now when I need green onions to toss in a pot, I have some already frozen and they're not all clumpy so I can get a good measure of what I need when I need it.


Do you freeze excess veggies and herbs?  Don't you HATE when they go bad and you can't use them?  UGH!  Do you throw out a lot of veggies and fruit?
