Chives


A member of the onion family chives have long green rounded leaves that are snipped and used to flavor and decorate foods. The chive flowers can be used as well. We like to use them atop carrot leek soup. Fresh are superior to freeze dried but they will do in a pinch. Chives are easy to grow.
