    The next time you have green onions, don't throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely. We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals. I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.

      Maybe a stupid question, but you mean you don't actually use the onion, but only use the "leaves" like chives? I always use the "whole" thing. The green leaves aren't actually onions, and they don't really taste of onions. It doesn't make much sense to me, unless I misunderstood and you just cut of the tip of the onion with the roots attached? But then the "scissors" wouldn't make much sense. I guess I am just not getting it.

      I have to agree with SnapHappy. Is this an American thing and only the tops are used (like Chives)? In England all the white is used and part of the green. The roots and tops are sent to the compost heap.
