Question:

A recipe calls for scallions — what are they? And spring onions and shallots — what is the difference please?
— Irene


Answer

Scallions are immature onions (also called green onions or shallots) with a milky and slightly sweet flavour. Both the white bulb and the green tops can be used in cooking. The green tops also make an attractive garnish.

Spring onions are immature onions with a semi-developed bulb, about the size of a pickling onion. They have a stronger flavour than green onions and can be used in much the same way.
