Asked by Adirondackwannabe (33321 points ) 1 month ago

I’ve got a 4 or 5 year old plants that’s the size of a bushel basket. I’ve seen them used in cottage cheese. What are some other uses for them?

They taste great on top of a baked potato with sour cream, or you can add them to the top of a casserole or cheese spread.

I have plants about the same size. I use chives on as many thinngs as possible while they are fresh.

Toast and cream cheese – chives
Eggs – chives
Salad – chives
potato – chives
I even use the purple flowers on salads. They look beautiful but are a little strong.
Sometimes I will sprinkle chives spread around the edge of the dinner plate.

I smoosh a few on my hands to remove the work glove smell.
I cut about half a square inch worth at a time and put them in a water glass on the counter so I don’t need to go outside.

Throw them out. Can you tell I don’t like them?

All of the above and they are a nice addition to soups as well, and on garlic bread.

Freeze your herbs for year-round convenience. (We are covered in freezing snow for 6–7 months, so it is the only way to ensure year round cheap herbs.) http://awaytogarden.com/how-to-freeze-parsley-chives-and-other-herbs/

I use them in scrambled eggs and omelets, baked or cream sauce/potatoes, grits, rice recipes, mashed potatoes, and on and on. I love them and use them frequently.

I put them in biscuits. They make a nice addition without being overbearing.
