It is a great year for onions in my garden and today picked some red and white onions - still young. Has anyone used the onion tops for cooking? They are so fragrant. Thanks in advance.

Use them in making stock.

You can blanch and then puree them. Then add a bit of the puree to things like marinades (it would be really good in something similar to piri piri chicken/shrimp) or a pasta sauce.
I love using still tender onion tops just as I would use scallions. (I especially like them lightly fried in salted butter and scrambled with eggs.)

I like to saute them and use them as filling for filo pies, or tarts

Blanch them for no longer than 20 seconds and then make a pesto with parsley to balance the flavor. Toasted walnuts or cashews work well for nuts. I made a frittata for some clients using this onion top pesto, Gruyere cheese and Oregon morel mushrooms that was out of this world.
