She {hearts} Regrowing Green Onions

We love green onions.  They are perfect in a fresh garden salad, on top of a baked potato, and scattered in pretty much any savory dish.

A couple of years ago, I came across this great tip for regrowing your green onions.  It’s so simple, anyone can do it.

All you need to do is put the root ends in a small glass of water, place it on your window sill, and watch them grow!  See, simple!

I would also suggest replacing the water every few days.  When you do that, give the roots and ends a good rinse too.  They tend to get slimy, and eventually moldy if you don’t.

Give a try next time you buy green onions.  It may just save you a quick trip to the store, and eventually, a little bit of money too.

    Thanks for this great tip, Stacey! Can’t wait to try it.

  3. Yes organic green onions can be expensive. I have been trying this out for 2 years now by just planting them in a planter in my front yard. I ended up using the white parts for a recipe and harvested the whole thing. Next time I buy some more I am going to buy 2 bunches, perhaps putting them in water is good for bringing them inside during the colder months.

  4. Never thought of that! Thanks for the tip!

  5. I had no idea you could do this! I feel like I’m constantly using green onions when I cook, so I’m definitely going to try this out. Thanks for sharing!
