Herb Facts & Funny Names
I am sure the cooks out there will know the answer to this questions.
What is a scallion? A green onion. They are a variety of young onions with a long, thin white base that has not yet developed into a bulb and long straight green stalks that look like giant chives. Both the white base and the green stalks are commonly eaten.
What is a shallot? The shallot is a relative of the onion, and tastes a bit like an onion, but has a sweeter, milder flavor. Shallots are formed in clusters of offsets with a head composed of multiple cloves like garlic.
What is a leek? Leek looks like a scallion but much thicker and larger. It has a mild onion-like taste, less bitter than scallion. The taste might be described as a mixture of mild onion and cucumber, with a fresh smell similar to scallion.
What is a chive? Chives are the smallest species of the onion family and grown for their green hollow stock.
Mutual Fund To Check Out
I was recommended to check out Vanguard mutual funds. I am a day trader so I done some digging into there fund family. I was very impressed with the over all returns so I invested into this fund family and within 4 weeks I am already making a profit. Depending on your age and circumstances a Roth IRA is a very good way to go in the long run. Check out the Vanguard overview and it maybe a good fund for your portfolio as well.
