Did you know that you can regrow green onions? Seriously, how many like me, just cut up your onions and then threw away that precious bulb “waste” never thinking about it again? Yup, I was one of those. I would get my green onions from the store, then cut up, throw away, go about my day and repeat time after time. Well, no more. I have since learned that you can regrow your onions 3 or 4 times! So, after cutting up a few stalks of green onions last week (for a meal of potato soup and another of chicken fried rice) we are re-growing those onions. It’s been raining all weekend and I haven’t gotten any soil from outside to replant the onion bulbs, so I just put them in a bowl of water for now and they have already started to grow.
If you look closely you will see where they’ve already taken off and started their regrowth. Hopefully (that means, if I can remember) each Monday we will chronicle the growth of our onions so you (and I) can see how quickly these guys will regrow and you can have supplies of onions all year long with just a small investment.
