Grow Green Onions in your kitchen

15 Mar

A while back I was reading random blogs across the net and happened to land on an interesting article over at Urban Organic Gardner. ‘Growing Green Onions From Green Onions in Your Kitchen

Essentially you ‘re-grow’ green onions after each use. I remembered as a kid, growing the roots on a potato in a cup of water  so I figured why not give this a try.

My wife and I used our green onions, then gave it a shot; sure enough, it worked:

I know it won’t last too many more times, but we’re now on the 3rd grow for this particular set of onions, and they still taste good.

Give it a try!

Have you tried something similar? We’d like to hear about it in the comments.
