About This Food

Description

Chives are the bright green, long, hollow, thin leaves of Allium schoenoprasum, an onion-like member of the lily family.

Chives are one of the ingredients used in "fines herbes" - a traditional French herb blend often used in egg dishes like omelets or quiche and in sauces and butters.

Chives have a mild, onion-like flavor, with a hint of garlic.
