Question by i: How to tell when green onions go bad?
The dark green part has become limp and wrinkly. It is still very fragrant and the color has not changed.. The light green and white half seems to look normal. Can I use the light green part if I cannot use the dark green part?

Answer by Michelle
The light green will be fine eaten raw or cooked. Just make sure you rinse well.

The dark green, sometimes I go ahead and use it if I am cooking.

Once the dark green starts turning into more of a slime, throw it out. But even then – if there is some light green on other “blades”(or whatever you want to call them) it will still be fine to cook with.
