Growing Green Onions at Home – Save money while enjoying how simple it is to do!

I love Green Onions.  They are the perfect addition to almost every dish and they can be used in so many ways.  Whether it is a baked potato topping, garnish on a steak, used in an asian inspired dish, a soup, jalapeno poppers… the list is endless.  They are not expensive to purchase to begin with, but why not grow them yourself and save a few bucks?

All you have to do, is buy an initial bunch from the supermarket, and place them in a glass of water.  Place them in the sunniest part of your home you have and watch them regrow!

When you need some green onions for a dish, simply cut what you need off and place the white part, the bulb, back in the water. It grows so quickly- you’ll be able to have a new batch in a day or two.

You can also plant them in soil and it would have the same effect.  The same thing can be done with garlic, but I have not yet tried it.  Stay tuned (I am also obsessed with garlic so I HAVE to try that)!

Stay tuned for the picture updates!
