Extending Your Scallions

You don’t have to have a green thumb to benefit from this easy kitchen hack. If you throw away the ends of your green onions, you’re throwing away money. Use this simple hack to get double the onions for your money.

Any green onions will do, although I recommend organic if possible.

  1. Cut them down to just above the white part and separate them in a different pile.
  2. Use one of the rubber bands to lightly group them together.
  3. Find a small cup,  fill 1/3 with water and place them in it. The water should just cover the roots.
  4. Change the water every few days and within 10 days, you’ll have a full harvest of onions again!

You can do this a third time, but you’ll not get as much yield as they’ll be on their way out.
