I don’t use green onions in my cooking too much, but when I saw this pin, I knew I had to try it. It claimed that after you chop the top off of a green onion, you can put the roots in water and they will regrow. It just seemed way too easy.
Here is what my green onions looked like last week after I used them to make some delicious chicken enchiladas.
As you can see, I put the roots in a glass of water and put them in a sunny spot. I changed the water once because it started looking low, but they weren’t touched otherwise.
A week later, this is what they became…
Success! We came home from being away all weekend and couldn’t believe how well they were doing. In the words of my husband, “Now we can put green onions on everything!”
I would be more excited if this was a big money saver, but green onions are inexpensive to buy and since I don’t use them in cooking all that often, I probably won’t be growing green onions all the time. It’s pretty cool to know that it works though.
