Recycle Your Green Onions

I had heard it somewhere that if you save the root end of your green onions – aka chives – that you could re-grow fresh stalks. So I gave it a shot.

So it’s really simple. Take your chives…

Chop as you need for your dish, but leave about an inch of the stalk above your root end.

Then drop them, root end first (duh) into a shallow dish of water. Keep them in indirect sunlight and don’t let them dry out. In a few days you’ll start to see fresh stalks!

Yup, that’s it. Easy peasy!
