Chives

Chives are native to Europe and are still grown there today. Methods of freeze-drying have been perfected in the commercial production arena. The resulting product is almost equal to fresh chives and they can be substituted in equal amounts when called for in a recipe.

"He who bears chives on his breath, is safe from being kissed to death." - Martial's Epigrams (80 AD)

Chives are the smallest member of the onion family and have a delicate flavor. They can be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for chopped green onions and will produce a somewhat milder flavor. Try mixing them into soft cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese or butter to create a great bread spread. Of course they're always good on potatoes.

California has perfected methods for freeze-drying chives


"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome website. A friend sent me your website and I was like a kid in a candy store seeing your wide variety of spices, salts, herbs, etc. Being someone that's not extremely well versed in what I'd consider 'exotic' ingredients, it was an absolute pleasure to see the products' history, uses, taste and general information. Just wanted to voice my appreciation. Thanks so much!"
