    kitchen scrap magic

    It recently came to my attention that a lot of vegetable scraps can be put in water and regrown to an extent. The bottom of a Romaine lettuce head will grow another set of leaves if you stick it in water (they get bigger if you put it in dirt), celery/bok choy will grow new stalks, etc. Avocado pits sprout quickly but take like 15 years to produce avocados and pineapple tops will grow another pineapple in a few years - mind sort of blown.

    I currently have carrot tops sprouting new carrot greens and regrowing scallions on my windowsill. Pretty sure I will never have to buy scallions again.

    Do you regrow anything from your fruit and veggie scraps? What has been the most successful?

    we have regrown some of it, but most of it goes to soup stock.

    Most of mine goes to the chickens. But, now you've got me wanting to try that with a pineapple!

    it goes in a bag, in the freezer, for making stock and broth.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
