For almost two years now our family has been stretching our grocery money by regrowing green onions & freezing the results for future use. (Check out my previous post on freezing homegrown green onions.) After our previous success regrowing green onion in our house, I wanted to try something new and add them into a free corner of my vegetable garden.
On the left are green onion stumps after about 4 weeks (HUGE!) and on the right the tiny stumps of the onions I harvested today. I’m hoping that by regrowing them in the garden they would be able to be reused again and continue producing free produce for our kitchen.
Here’s today’s harvest:
After washing the green onion stalks, I cut and froze the pieces in a recycled cottage cheese container. Now we can take out a little bit at a time – even when winter is upon us. (This week we’ll be using them for loaded baked potatoes.)
And here’s the best part… my experiment was a success! Here are the same onion stumps just three days later – growing like weeds green onions. 🙂
Not sure what you’d make with so much green onion? Might I suggest my husband’s delicious Ranch Dip? It’s super easy…
- 8 oz. Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
- 1 package of powdered Ranch dip
- Chopped green onion from your freezer
- Mix ranch powder & sour cream in large bowl.
- Add half each of green onions, cheese & bacon bits and stir.
- Once mixed, pour into bowl of your choosing.
- Layer top with remaining cheese, bacon bits & green onion.
- Serve with crackers and/or fresh veggies.
Do you freeze and preserve home grown produce? I’m excited about the possibilities it holds & look forward to improving my skills in the future! I’d love to hear about your experiences in the comments below.
