A small harvest

Post  bnoles on 5/6/2013, 5:23 pm

My wife informed me that we were having pinto beans and cornbread for dinner tonight (one of my favorite meals). Being the full blooded country boy I am, I ran out to the TT SFG and plucked a couple of scallions to go with with my meal. I have had my eye on this square for several days now just waiting for the opportunity to try these.

I knew you had to be from the south for Pinto beans, cornbread and onions. We have that often! Add some fried potatoes for a real treat. Very Happy

Scallions ..... a new word for my American to English dictionary book .
We call them spring onions .. a very popular variety here is called white lisbon. Sometimes they are quite mild almost sweet , sometimes though they blow your socks off and make your eyes water for a few minutes .

The green tops are often cut in to 1/52 ( ish ) sort of lengths and the resultant tubes of green are added to potato salads or cheese & coleslaws for a bit of " bite " .

Just washed, cut up, and put in zip lock freezer bags with as much air squeezed out as possible. Did the same with little banana peppers. They were terrific sautéed with morning eggs.

Maybe it is a Eastern dialect thing? Any rate here in Montana and when I lived in SanDeigo we call those green onions. I have heard old timers call them spring onions as well.

Scallions

Post  Windmere on 5/7/2013, 12:10 pm

I have also always referred to scallions a green onions. I used to confuse them with shallots, but I know better now.
