The only way to stop green onions from getting slimy

 
If you buy scallions (also called green onions), they are always sold in bunches. While a recipe may call for one or two, it's rare that you use all of them at once. This is where our problem begins. How do you store fresh green onions until the next time you need them? No one likes green onions wilted, slimy, and brown.

The best way to store green onions  

 First, remove any covering or rubber from the green onions and separate them. If any are already bad, remove them and throw them in the compost. 

Place a layer of paper towels and place the green onions on top, leaving a little space between each one. Top with another paper towel, then gently roll into a packet. Put everything in a zip-top bag, remove most of the air, and seal it. Keep it in your pantry drawer.

Why this method works

 The main reason for scallions to become sad is from trapped moisture. You need a balance of moisture: to keep them dry but not too much and it will accelerate their deterioration. A paper towel helps prevent excess moisture, while a sealed bag keeps it dry.
 

Based on my extensive experiments, green onions stored in this way take two or three weeks. Wrap green onions between paper towels and store in a zip-top plastic bag
