Egyptian onions (Allium proliferum) are a perennial onion that can be used throughout the season. They are a top-setting onion, meaning they create small “sets” or new bulbs at the top of the stalks in mid-summer. These sets are good to eat, and if you leave some on the plants, they will eventually fall over onto the ground and plant themselves. In this way, the onions tend to “walk” around the garden, which gives rise to their common name “Walking Onions.” In the spring, the early greens and small onion bulbs, which you have in your share today, can be used as scallions. Chop them up and add to dishes raw or just at the end of cooking to preserve the bright, fresh flavor.
