How to Re-Grow Green Onions

Did you know that you can actually re-grow green onions? You are not going to believe this until you try it for yourself. Hopefully my photos will make you a believer! I first saw this idea here. I had to give it a try myself.

The next time you buy green onions, cut the green part off the onions, and use them for cooking or in your salad.

Place the white portions of the onions with roots still attached into a glass of water, and set them in your kitchen window. By the end of the day you literally will be able to see that they are starting to re-grow.

After about 3 days in the jar, my onions had re-grown at least 2 inches. I cut them off again, down to the white portion. The second photo I have posted is the onions a week after I had first cut them. This photo was taken after they had re-grown a SECOND time. They had grown a total of at least 6 inches in ONE week!

This experiment is really fun, you should give it a try.
