  • 8 The Farm’s spring onions (about 1 pound), root ends trimmed

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted cultured Arethusa Farms butter, divided

  • Kosher salt

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives


  1. Lay onions in a large skillet, trimming top of dark greens to fit. Add 2 tablespoons butter and 1/2 cup water to skillet; season with salt. Bring to a boil; cover. Reduce heat and simmer onions until greens are soft and bulbs are almost tender, 15-20 minutes. Uncover and cook, turning onions occasionally, until bulbs are completely tender, 5-8 minutes longer.
