In the winter I found a recipe for savory scones that called for scallions. I thought they looked like something between a green onion and a leek. I went to the store and was unable to see anything that looked like that. When it got time to start going to the Port Perry Farmer's Market I asked in the store for scallions. Well, scallions do not look anything like a leek or a green onion. They are more like a garlic. I now know what to look for, so I will be bringing scallion and black sesame seed scones to the market.
I was right scallions are green onions. The picture about is of shallots. The scones still tasted great but I think they are better with scallions
