Q: How do you keep green onions fresh for more than a few days? I just threw out two bunches I bought only three days ago. What’s the trick to making them last longer?

Editor: I’m curious as to how you’ve been storing your green onions. We store green onions, or scallions, the same way we store asparagus. After removing the rubber band, stand the scallions in a jar, cover the whole thing with a plastic bag, and keep it in the fridge. Stored this way, the scallions stay crisp for about a week.

Kitchn readers, do you have any advice on the best way to keep green onions fresh longer?
