Little Green Onions

Did you know you could re-grow green onions? You can! I feel a little like Dr. Frankenstein - I have the power to re-give life!

Just cut cut the onions a couple of inches from the bulb, stick them in an inch or so of water and set them in a sunny spot. Soon you'll see green shoots sprouting up - cool!

Keep doing it as long as you can, adding more water as needed. You should get 3-4 re-growths from your onions.

  1. I LOVE this idea! I generally only need 2 or 3 onions every few weeks so this seems like it would be a perfect reuse of the bulbs!!

  2. I had no idea you could do this- what a great tip! Thanks!

  3. Can you then replant them in the ground? That would be awesome.
