Re-sprouting Green Onions

This is really easy and a lot of fun.  I've been reading about re-sprouting green onions and decided to sacrifice four of them to see if it would workOn day one I took two green onions, used the "green" for something I was cooking and then placed the white bulbs in a glass.  A couple of days later I changed the water and washed the bulbs.  I then put two more bulbs in the glass.  The first photo shows the two day growth and the second two onions just placed in the glass.  The second picture shows the four green onions after three more days (today actually).  In a couple of more days I'll be able to use the green on the first two onions and I've been told that I can re-use those bulbs and start again.  I use these a lot and when I'm out I'm sad.  If I can remember to keep this going I can have them all the time.  I'll keep you posted on how many times we can use the same bulbs!


  1. Thats amazing, I have some scallions and will give this a try. What a brilliant idea.

    1. In the next day or two I'm making beef burgundy and will use these as a garnish.... will let you know how they taste, etc
