An herb which resembles hollow blades of grass, and the smallest member of the onion family….Chef’s Quality Chives.
Chives have a mild onion flavor.
Their distinctive smell and taste is derived from a volatile oil, rich in sulphur and common to the onion family, but milder and more subtle in chives.
Referred to only in the plural, because they grow in clumps rather than alone.
Many think chives taste like a sweet, milder version of an onion.
Used in cold soups, stir- fried items, cheese and cream sauces, dips, potatoes, and as a garnish. They are popular in European and Chinese cuisines and in the seasoning blends of fine herbs.
