Some More Good Reasons to Use Chives@


By Arlene Wright- Correll



Here at Home Farm Herbery we not only grow chives, we sell the seeds so you can grow your own and we dry the chives and sell them to our customers who do not grow them.


We along with our customers have many uses for them and we find this multipurpose health booster to be high in vitamin C, folic acid, potassium, calcium and iron and this is true of not only Chives, but the Chive Flowers also.


When you use these you will find your digestion improving, your cholesterol lowering, your metabolism improving and also your support system!


Chives are best eaten raw so when you add them to your salads or include them as a garnish in other dishes you are really getting their maximum effectiveness.


Whenever you make your favorite biscuit recipe try adding chopped chives and you will be delighted as they will be bursting with flavor.


Why not consider combining 1 tablespoon of Freeze Dried Chopped Chive Rings 

with 4 ounces of gorgonzola cheese, 1/8th teaspoon kosher salt and 1 stick of softened unsalted butter?


Just mix in a bowl and then form into a log and refrigerate until firm.  We use it as a sauce for gnocchi and also to accompany meats such as hamburgers or steaks.


When we plant tomatoes, carrots, roses and apple trees we mix chive seeds  among the dirt.  When they first grow the chives will repel aphids from the tomatoes as well as from our sunflowers and mums.



After 3 years of chive growth we discovered they prevented rose black spot and apple scab.


The chive blossom make a wonderful addition to salads giving them a subtle onion flavor and we also find them great to add to salad dressings.




May the Creative Force be with you,
