Q: How do you keep green onions (scallions) fresh? I have tried putting them in a container with water just on the roots, and storing in the fridge. After a day or two, they tend to wilt (the green tops always get limp).

What is the solution, or is there a solution?

This is a real problem for me, since I like to use a few at a time.

Editor: We like to use the same method you already use, with the addition of placing a plastic bag over the greens. Give it a try!

Readers, do you have a different way you store scallions?
