Chives are the smallest and most delicate member of the onion family. With a bright green colour they are the perfect accompaniment to a number of meals, and are excellent as a garnish.

How to Use

Chives are at their best in mild, creamy sauces and egg dishes, or as a garnish for soups and salads. They can also add flavour to cheese sandwiches, and mashed or jacket potatoes.

How to Prepare

Chives are easy to prepare – simply wash before use and cut with scissors or a sharp knife.

How to Cook

To preserve their flavour, chives should be added to cooked dishes at the last moment.

How to Store

Refrigerate for freshness.
