I came across a blog a few weeks ago (sorry that I didn't keep track of it) where the poster showed that you can regrow scallion greens. Yep - your heard me right! Cut the green part, place the white part with the roots in a glass/jar/bottle of water on your windowsill and watch the magic happen.
I find this to be a fascinating what to get the most out of a bag of scallions and it is kind of nice to have a little green on the windowsill during the winter months. I know - winter hasn't been all that plentiful in along the mid-Atlantic coast this year but . . . it's the thought that counts.
Please see the photos below for my humble attempt to provide a photographic log of my own personal scallion revolution! (I have since realized the error of my back-lighting ways.)
|First cut and submersion in water|
|A few days and several scallions later. I have also changed the water about every three days to keep things fresh.|
|This is the progress about 9 days out.|
|This is just a really cool picture . . .|
