Regrowing Shallots

Posted by Kim Fong On 16:34 1 comment

This started off as an experiment that proved fruitful indeed. 

Hypothesis: Can you regrow shallots in a jar with water. 

Background: My parents, grandma and Uncles have always talked about regrowing various herbs and plants where the original produce came from the supermarket. These included such items coriander, parsley, spring onions, chilli, garlic etc. I was a bit sceptical but then, I see 

Setup: Stubs of shallots cut a few inches from the roots. Place standing in a glass of water filled just above the roots. Sit on the window sill that gets sunlight.

Maintenance: Regularly change the water to freshen it up.  

Result: Free shallots!
