Freezing scallions

by Gary
(Denver)

Q: How do you freeze fresh scallions and have them not wilted when they defrost?

A: Gary, it's impossible. Because of the high water content in vegetables, including onions and scallions, when they freeze the cell structure gets broken down as those water molecules expand.

They'll never be 'crisp' again and always seem 'wilted.' Scallions, onions and other vegetables just aren't good to eat raw after thawing.
