Chives; Culinary uses
Chives are best added at the end of cooking, or their flavour will disappear. They are excellent in omelettes and scrambled eggs, or as a garnish for soups. They can be mashed into soft cheese, or added to sour cream as a filling for baked potatoes. Their flowers make an attractive 'oniony' addition to summer salads - and the more these are removed from the plant, the more the chives will grow.'Chives'; 'Chives; To keep once cut'; 'Chives, Medicinal uses'
