Scallions

From: Letterbox Collective (Organically Grown in Hudson, NY)

Also known as spring onions or green onions, scallions are young onions harvested before onion bulbs have matured. Scallions taste great raw in salads; they can also be grilled, roasted, or stir-fried. We recommend grilling, especially with some balsamic vinegar and oil. Both the slender green tops and white bulbs are edible.

  3. How do I use the new customer coupon I bought last week.? I am a new customer (10/11 was my first order) and I didn’t realize I was purchasing a coupon. Please let me know.
