      Green onions, don’t throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water & place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately & can be harvested almost indefinitely. Periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.

      Minder bewerkelijk en minder plaatsverspillend is dit idee: leg de afgesneden ajuinbodems in een glas met water, op een zonnige plaats, en recupereer zo een boel verse ajuin. Eindeloos te herhalen!

      Grow green onions in your windowsill! Next time you buy fresh green onions don't toss the white ends. Instead stick them in water and place in a sunny window. Whenever you have a recipe that calls for green onions just snip off what you need.
