Going to the grocery store and mindlessly paying for things we need has become surprisingly comfortable. The last time I bought green onions was over a year ago, yet I use them almost on a daily basis in my cooking? How is that possible you ask? I am going to tell you How to Re-Grow Your Green Onions. No green thumb required.
I bought a new bunch of green onions for this post just to show you how it is done. They cost me about $0.99. I kept them in the fridge and cut the tops off to use them. Leaving about 1-2 inches of green and the white bottoms & roots intact.
I then took a small glass and filled it with water. I placed the cut onions in the water like pictured above. No secret ingredients. Put them on the kitchen counter and walk away.
2 days later they look like this. They have already grown a couple inches.
4 days after they went in the water they look like this. Pudge is taking time to stop and smell the onions. LOL
At this point I am comfortable with planting them. The roots have grown and the tops are definitely growing. Just use a pair of scissors to cut off the green tops you will use leaving the roots in the ground. They will continue to regrow for you to use time after time.
I have a HUGE Green Onion bunch like they that has been in a pot in my garden for over a year now and is still going strong. So….$0.99 = unlimited green onions! Love it
