Chives Al­lium schoeno­pra­sum

NZ Lifestyle Block - - DIY FOOD -

THE pretty, light mauve flow­ers of chives have a mild onion flavour, which is very pleas­ant in sal­ads. Pick them just be­fore they open and pull in­di­vid­ual flo­rets off the flower head. The mild, gar­lic-tast­ing flow­ers of gar­lic chives ( Al­lium tubero­sum) can be used in a sim­i­lar way. Chives like a rich soil in full sun with plenty of wa­ter.
