Ugh, stir-fry recipes: always calling for two stalks of green onions, then leaving you with a whole bunch that invariably goes bad in the fridge. Luckily, we found a clever way to freeze ’em so they not only last but are ready to use. Here’s what to do with leftover green onions (finally).
What you need: Green onions and an empty container of bottled water (funnel optional)
What you do: Dice the whole bunch and dry them with a paper towel. Then, using your funnel, fill the water bottle with the ones you’re not planning to cook. Twist on the cap and store the bottle in your freezer.
But how long will they last? At least three weeks. Use a Sharpie and some masking tape to label and date the bottle and keep track, so the next time a recipe calls for green onions, you can remove the bottle and shake out exactly what you need.
And there’s no more chopping required? Nope. Just eating.
