We are huge green onion fans so I thought I’d share this quick tip with you guys.
It’s garden season now and you can easily regrow the onions that you purchase at the store simply by planting the bulbs in your garden or planter. Fresh green onions at your finger tips. Super easy to do and saves you money!
We used to throw the bulbs out (dumb I know as you can just use them in your recipes). Until a couple of years ago I read that you can easily regrow them.
You can easily do this in the winter time too just by putting the bulbs in the water.
I’ve found that it’s best to use only a little bit of water so that just the the bottoms are emerged in the water. Otherwise the outside stalks tend to rot faster. But you can easily get another couple of growths from this method as shown above. I’ve found that you can usually regrow them about two or three times. Eventually they get slimy on the outside of the bulbs, in which case I try to peel the outer layers to get another growth out of ’em or I throw them into the compost.
And if I have a lot of green onions, then I cut them up and throw them in a Tupperware container and store in the fridge.
I just read yesterday that you can actually regrow celery too. I’ll be trying that soon too.
You guys know of any other easy garden/kitchen tips?
