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 then...um...erra...wait...what 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?
