Regrowing Green Onions

This idea is all over Pinterest so it isn’t something new–but maybe you’re skeptical or haven’t seen this idea before!

I bought green onions to make nachos. I kept them in the fridge and snipped some off every day when I had lunch. When I got pretty close to the end of the green I remembered seeing the regrow idea and put mine in a jar of water.

I took a straw and put it through the center of the bunch and then put a rubber band around the green onions above and below the straw so that it was suspended in the jar. I filled it with water to cover the roots and the white bulb, and I have been changing the water daily to keep things fresh.

This is one day of growth. You can see the inside layers are higher than the outside layers. If I would stop using them every day they’d get somewhere, but I’ve been a little impatient.green onions1
