'Home grown' green onions

A couple of weeks ago, I saw something on Pinterest about regrowing green I figured what the heck, I'd give it a try.  

I'd bought a bunch for some recipe, but only used a little bit from the top end.  So the instructions said just to put the bottom ends in water, and they'll grow. 


And after.  It freaking worked. 

And now I understand why they are sold chopped and with rubber bands!  The stalks are crazy and going everywhere.  I've changed the water a couple of times, just when it starts to look a little murky.  I'm not sure that I'll be able to keep them for ever, but at least maybe I won't have to buy green onions quite as often!

  1. I've seen this on Pinterest too and always wondered if it worked. I have some green onions in the fridge so I'm going to give this a try. Ps- I love roasted green onions
