I absolutely love green onions, but they're kind of expensive here and they don't keep for very long. When I did buy them, I never used a whole bunch so they wound up going to waste. I'm all about being as frugal as possible, so I found a way to grow the scraps into an endless supply of free, fresh green onions! Here's how:
- Trim the green and light green areas off of a bunch of green onions. Set them aside to be used.
- Take a clear glass jar and stand up the ends, root side down.
- Add one to two inches of water, and place the jar in a bright window.
- Change the water and rinse the roots every few days to prevent mildew.
