My husband and I have been marveling at this sprig of mint we bought 6 months ago in July. We purchased it to use in my father-in-law’s wondrous mojitos, placing it in the shot glass we received as a favor at a friend’s wedding. It is still there. Growing. Rooting. Flourishing as much as it can in a tall shot glass filled with tap water.
Tonight, as I was chopping celery for dinner, I wondered if you could easily regrow celery leftovers in a sunny window. Turns out you can, along with a number of other kitchen oddments. It makes a lot of sense to me–and even better sense if you start with organically grown kitchen scraps.
Here is a list of the various links I found that will help me, and hopefully you, “recycle” our kitchen scraps:
- Celery (works for Romaine and Bok Choy as well)
- Green Onions (shallots and leeks, too)
- Ginger, Onion, potatoes, sweet potatoes
- Pineapple (this one os a little more involved)
- Garlic (as easy as planting it in the ground)
Have you had success re-growing your kitchen scraps? What have you tried? Do you have any tips for me?
