Is there a trick to get that goo out of a green onion? Nothing grosses me out more than when I start slicing one and all that sticky stuff leaks out. You know what I mean? It looks like a gel. I don't know why sometimes it's there and sometimes it isn't... I end up ruining the onion in my effort to get it out
I've seen that, too. I can't stand using them if they have slime -
to me it indicates they are going off even tho there's no bad odor. The ones that are bright green & small (slender fronds) with nice firm bulbs don't ever have slime.
Small is the keyword, I always seem to catch this when I buy big ones... Well, it looks like you were right, it was a sign that they were on the edge. I didn't touch them and couple days later they were completely gooified. First time I've ever seen that. I'm gonna have to give my green onions a goo-check before buying from now on.
