I love spring onions (I believe they're called green onions in the US); I use them in salads and to add flavor.
The problem is, whenever I get them from the supermarket, they're filled with dirt. No matter how much I wash them, and spray water inside the little stalks, there is always a considerable amount of dirt inside.
I'm a little bit confused as to what I'm supposed to do with this.
Is there a way to clean the dirt from the green section, apart from doing something nutty such as cutting open each stalk?
Or are you supposed to just eat the dirt?
