If you’re like me, you buy green onions for certain dishes, but whatever you don’t use ends up going bad in the fridge. I’ll go to use them for another recipe only to find that they have morphed into a mystery bag of spoiled mucky green slime in the bottom drawer. My problem is now solved! I regrow my green onions so I can always have them on hand!
Here’s how to regrow green onions
Ok, sorry, but this is not rocket science here. I was floored when I found out you could do this. Just save the bulb ends and place them root side down into a narrow cup. Add about 3/4 inch of water and put it near a window to grow more green onion goodness! Just change out the water every few days. My husband made an omelette this morning and we just snipped off a few inches to add to it! By the way, we love using these 5-blade scissors for green onions: Culinary Multipurpose 5-blade Herb Scissors Stainless Steel Blades
