How to Freeze Green Onions

  1. Wash your onions.  
  2. Next, chop off the roots, cut the bulb off and remove any dead growth. Discard.
  3. Chop the green onions in small pieces.
  4. Spread out the chopped onions on a cookie sheet. For easier remove later, place parchment paper on top of the cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer. This prevents the onions from clumping together. 
  5. After the onions have been in the freezer for a few hours, remove them from the cookie sheet and place them in a ziplock bag. 
  6. Since freezing onions will cause them to lose their crisp texture, use the frozen onions in future cooking, such as soups, marinades, omelettes, fried rice, etc.
