Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) are a slender, aromatic herb having a milder flavor than onions or garlic. The plant grows on thin stems embellished by pretty purple blooms. The likes of Gordon Ramsey and Paula Dean make it a standard in their potager gardens! Besides the medicinal effects of being a heart-protecting antioxidant, it's also rich in Vitamins A, C, K, folate, and manganese! Bon appetite!

About Chives

Chives have had many uses other than a garnish on your fish! The Romans used it as a medicinal pain reliever for sunburns and sore throats! It was also an ingredient to increase blood pressure. Romani (an ethnic group from India) used it in fortune-telling and to ward off disease and evil in their homes. Additionally, Dutch dairy farmers in the 19th century flavored the milk by feeding the cattle this tasty herb.
