Onions - Do you remove the green spots?

Do you remove the green spots inside the onion? What are the green thingies? Is this an indication that the onion is going or has gone bad? TIA

I guess you are talking about a sprout? In the middle? Just pull it out. They are beginning to "grow".

The green won't hurt you; I use it. The brown as Robo said, I cut out.

Sorry but if my oignons turn to a point where they are sprouting, I just throw them out and make a mental note to buy new ones next time I'm in the supermarket.
Not that they ever reach that point with me... depending on what I cook I go through 1lbs of oignons in less than 2 weeks.

Yes. The sprout, inside the onion, as you are slicing it.

Talking

As far as I know the green spot won't hurt anything.

Have a nice day.

The onion rots from the inside out.
The green thingy is the shoot - so you could, theoretically, plant it and have baby onions in about 3 months!
Once the onions have a green shoot, they begin to turn soft and sort of sickly. MUCH better to have a nice, crisp, fresh, white (or red!) onion...
