Never-ending Scallions

I picked up a neat little trick from this past season of The Next Food Network Star. Melissa d’Arabian (who was the winner) spoke about taking scallions and placing the ends, or white part, in a glass of water so they could regenerate. I was intrigued by this because I love any opportunity to save some money. A few weeks later, I had purchased some scallions and took her advice and gave it a try.

Turns out, it works really well. In fact, I’ve had to cut them back a couple times because they grow so quickly. After the first trim I made, I decided to take some pictures to share. These pictures were taken just one week apart. All I did was leave them in a glass cup on my kitchen window sill which gets a decent amount of afternoon sun. I change the water about once a week.

One week later.....

Pretty crazy, huh? I haven't a chance to catch Melissa's show yet, but I'm planning on it to catch any other neat tips she may have.

That Melissa, she's so plucky.

UPDATE: This trick only works about 3 or 4 times and then the scallions sort of give up on re-growing.
