Regrowing Green Onion: Did You Know?

10 Mar

Did you know that you can easily regrow green onion from the comfort of your own home?

It’s true! While I can’t take the credit for figuring it out, I did find this super cool trick on another blog. Usually when green onions (also known as scallions) are used, the white root ends are discarded. Now, however, you can have a constant supply of these delicious onions without having to go to the store each time!

Regrowing Green Onion

After 4 Days

All you need are the following items:

  • White root end of green onion
  • Drinking glass, jar or vase
  • Water
  • Windowsill

Place root ends in glass and add a little water, enough to cover the roots. Allow to sit in a window for 7-14 days, changing the water every other day. After this duration you will have beautiful green onions ready for consumption. “How much sunlight do I need?” you ask…well another added benefit to this is that you don’t need a super sunny window. Even partial sunlight will do. Have fun!
