So silly, so simple, but I can’t believe I’ve never done this before!!
Who doesn’t cook with onion?… ok, I have a friend who is allergic, so there are a few out there! But for the most part, we all use onions in our cooking at some point.
One of my kids usually likes the onions in stir fry, rice or fish dishes, the other kid, will pull them out one by one!
What they both enjoyed was this small kitchen science experiment on the window sill.
We used our fresh scallions to make dinner, but were sure to keep about an inch above the root, put them in a clear jar of fresh water just below the cut, and watched them grow! Within a week, we had a new bunch of scallions!!
Eventually if you keep trying to re-grow from the same roots, they will turn pale green and yellow as their roots run out of nutrients.
