I like to mix up some green onions, Gulden’s mustard, and mayo with the leftover turkey/chicken for yummy sandwich fixings after Thanksgiving. So as I was chopping the green onions, I remembered a tip my friend Wendy taught me: Make your green onions last a long time by chopping them and putting them in water (or into a pot of dirt).
I like to put them in the water as the kids can watch how fast the roots and the green onions grow! Plus, it’s easy to pull out what you need again and chop, chop, chop!
So… chop off the green onion…
Updated Tip: Make sure you change the water daily! And after the first time of watching it grow again and using it, I’d suggest planting it in dirt to let it fully regrow the third time. A great science lesson for kids!
