Description

Chives are used in garnishes, salads, egg mayonnaise, sandwiches, vegetable stocks, soups, creamy sauces, potato dishes and omelettes. They are usually added to the dish just before serving. They are a close relative to onion, garlic, leeks and scallions. Of these, chives have the most delicate flavour. Chives are at home in French cuisine.

Chives are said to be a natural antibiotic and an effective antiseptic. They are claimed to be rich in calcium, phosphorous, sulphur, folic acid and vitamin A and C. The mild anti-inflammatory properties in chives mean that they may lower the chance of getting rheumatoid arthritis if eaten every day. Chives contain a high amount of vitamin K which studies have shown has the potential to promote bone strengthening and limit damage in the brain.
