Ok, so sometimes it's the little things that blow my mind the most. Like, the really, really little things.
While trolling the internet last week, somewhere (maybe a lot of somewheres? That seems to happen on the internet...) I saw a kitchen tip. Instead of tossing the white bases from your scallions, stick them in a glass of water on a sunny windowsill. They grow new scallions! Like, really. Ours are probably six inches long after less than a week.
I love scallions but I don't buy them often because we always end up throwing most of them away. Now I'm never buying them again because we are always going to have them growing on our windowsill.
It's easy. And fresh. And that's just awesome.
