1 scallion


When a recipe calls for 1 scallion / green onion / spring onion, what does it mean?

Is it A (a bundle as sold), B (a bunch of connected shoots), or C (one shoot)?

Usually I just ignore the count and put in as much as I think makes sense, but I've never actually been sure what the count means.

Best Answer

B is 1 scallion.

A is a bunch.

C is just the green part which I usually dispose in favor of the white part you seem to throw out...
