- Onions, Scallions -

(Onions - Scallions)  The scallion is the first growth from an onion seed.  It is harvested as soon as it has nice green leaves and before the bulb begins to develop.  Scallions are delicious raw as pictured and used for a veggie dip, cut as an addition to a tossed salad, or cut and sprinkled on soups and Chinese dishes.  Select scallions that have bright green, crisp leaves.  If fresh when purchased, they will last almost a week in the vegetable bin of a refrigerator.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-12)
