- Yield: Makes about 1 1/3 cups
- 1 1/2 cups peanut oil
- 3 to 4 bunches (1 pound) scallions, trimmed and cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces, white portions lightly smashed
Heat a wok over medium heat. Add oil, and then scallions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until scallions turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. Turn off heat, and let cool in wok. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl, and let stand until room temperature. Pour into a glass jar, and refrigerate until ready to use.
