FOVD – Green Onions

Green Onions - Spring Onions

Today’s Fresh Organic Veggie of the Day is green onions. I’m more familiar with the smaller bulbed green onions I see at the grocery store, but as I understand it, this is a sub-species (or something like that) known as Spring Onions.

Whatever they’re called, they’re pretty strong. I sliced one over my salad and it was very intense raw. I think the rest of ours will end up in a pasta sauce tonight where they can simmer down a bit.

We received some things we’re familiar with, like the lettuce above, but also some things we’d never seen before. I figure that makes for great “Fresh Organic Veggie of the Day” content for The Deets, so look for more posts on that in the coming days.
