|Can I pick my green onions from my garden and freeze them until I need to use them? If so, any hints I need to know about freezing them? I live in zc 85022. Thanks

|You can't freeze green onions. Their water content is high enough that the tissues will burst and you'll have nothing but mush when they are defrosted. You can harvest the green tops, though, chop them up and freeze them. I just lay them out on a cookie sheet and set the cookie sheet in the freezer for about an hour. When the chopped tops are frozen I empty them into a plastic freezer bag. They remain separate from one another and when I want to use them for cooking I just grab some out of the bag with a spoon or cup. Best wishes with your green onions.
