I'm reading a book right now which takes place in a Shandong village, and one food item mentioned that I've never heard of is referred to as "Fistcakes." These are flatbreads, stuffed with eggs and green onions, then rolled up and eaten with both fists - hence, the name "Fistcakes." I don't even know if these are real food items, since the book is a work of fiction, but still, they sound wonderful. gnatharobed, or anyone else familiar with regional Chinese peasant cuisine, do you have any familiarity with these?
Spring onions have a bulb that "springs" out. Scallions are "light" because they have no "bulb." As for the tops? You're on your own.

You should be quite amused, by shallots - food, and dark.
