CHIVES

21st February 2018

My small nephew calls them skinny onions. Each time I use them in my favourite pasta dish he moans: ‘’ Aunty I don’t like separating these skinny onions, with a fork!” Ha! Most children don’t like vegetables and often call them things but the tricky part is often use them in sweet dishes so they don’t realize they are actually eating vegetables. Chives are part of the onion family and they often grow wild in Britain, Europe, Asia and the United States. The flavour of chives is a fugitive and elusive one, for the essential oil is highly volatile. For this reason, they are best used in cold dishes like potato salad and salsa. When used in hot dishes like chive sauce for boiled beef, or consommé, they should be added only after the cooking is terminated. Chives contribute a delicious sharp, fresh green flavor that makes a marvelous foil to pale, bland, creamy dishes.
