Is one of the classic kitchen herbs, mainly used in egg dishes, salads and numerous dairy products. Chives contains numerous vitamins and secondary plant substances that have a positive influence on our health.
The chive flowers are also edible. They also taste leeky and are a nice splash of colour in summer salads.
Saving vitamins and minerals
Chives should never be dried as they lose their aroma, flavour and healthy ingredients (vitamins and essential oils). However, freezing is not a problem. Simply wrap the fresh herb in a beeskin and put it in the freezer. The tubes keep their shape, the aroma and the vitamins. We recommend a beeskin size m or L. Did you know, as first time customer you receive a free beeskin from us? You only pay for the shipping costs.
