The Technique


Fresh chives are a reliable herb in the kitchen as they not only offer distinctive flavor to recipes, they may be used to garnish items beautifully. Just a smattering of shipped chives provides good taste & color to a variety of appetizers, side dishes, salads & soups. Beyond the table, the clippings may be paired with other herbs including parsley & thyme to create lovely bouquets that may be used to garnish foods or tucked into bud vases to scatter throughout entertaining spaces when social gatherings are in order.

How To Grow & Use Chives

Chives are a perennial herb that can be used to season & garnish foods. They are a member of the allium family & closely related to garlic & spring onions but have a mild flavor that pairs particularly well with potatoes, frittatas & Fresh Herb Cheese appetizers. They’re also good contenders to use in compound butters & canapé applications when entertaining.

The Technique

Chives are relatively simple to grow. Press the seeds into loose, damp soil in a window box that receives good light & watch them grow. The stems may be snipped to use in recipes & they will continue to thrive again & again. To store them, tuck the stems in a plastic zip top bag & place it in the refrigerator for several days. Rinse them just before using in recipe applications for the best look, flavor & texture.
