How to prepare spring onions
After washing, cut off the root and any ragged top ends. Round the bulb with a knife. Depending on the form you want, cut the green tops crosswise (kitchen scissors work well for this) or lengthways with a knife, then lengthways again. Cut the tops into thin strips as described above if you wish to use them as a garnish, and then leave them in ice-cold water for 30 minutes.
How to store spring onions
In a perforated bag in the fridge. Spring onions don’t last as long as onions, so use within four or five days.
