Foodies: young onions - what are they?
So I’m writing a short essay about a poem that includes the phrase “young onions”. (Btw, totally not asking you to do my homework for me). I looked it up on google and it was really hard to find a definition (the best I found was here http://www.harvestwizard.com/2008/05/... but even that seems to be more a how-to identify certain kinds of young onions than anything). So I decided to come here and ask.
To you, is a “young onion” just a green onion? Are there connotations I’m missing? Where have you heard it called that? (I’ve only ever heard the differentiations - spring onion, green onion, scallion). Do you know why these are called young onions (other than the fact that they simply haven’t been growing long)?
