Chives are the smallest species in the onion family, grown for the culinary uses of both leaves and flowers.
Chives add zest to savory dishes and are most often used chopped and raw as a garnish. They have an oniony flavor and pair well with potatoes, eggs, seasonal veggies, shellfish, and pork dishes. They’re also great for savory quiches and scones.
Store your chives in a plastic bag with a paper towel or kitchen towel in the fridge. They’re delicate, so try and use them within the first half of the week.
