Well, okay, maybe not forever, but longer than it takes to use up that bunch you have sitting in your fridge!
You’ll have to forgive me this non-food post, but I saw a picture of this method for regrowing scallions/green onions on Pinterest a while back. It was one of those horribly annoying pins that has no link… Gah! Those bug me! Anyway, I had no real background or information to go on, but the picture was pretty self-explanatory… put the white parts of your scallions in water (after you’ve used the greens) and they will grow back.
Look at that little peeper peeping out!
I took these pictures just 3 or 4 days after placing the root ends in water. I like seeing results right away, it lets you know you’re on the right course! Since then they’ve grown another couple of inches, and are ready to harvest should I need some! I added a second bunch over the weekend (not pictured), and those have already grown nearly an inch! With the 2nd bunch, I left the rubber band on to let them grow more neatly in the glass.
I’ll be back on Monday with another AHHMAZING Korean recipe that uses an entire bunch of scallions- so you can buy a bunch, use em’ up, then plant the ends in a glass of water on your counter!
