The delicate onion flavor of freshly chopped Chives is a welcome addition to practically any menu. A relative of onions and leeks, Melissa’s Chives may be used in place of raw onion whenever a more mild flavor is desired.

Chopped Chives can also be sprinkled on eggs, salads, dips and are a favorite garnish on baked potatoes. Chives will not withstand cooking, so add just before serving to retain their flavor.

Melissa’s Fresh Herbs are hand selected for excellent quality. Choose fresh-looking Chives with good color and a clean, fresh scent. Avoid any brown spots or wilted stalks or leaves. Use soon after purchasing.

To keep fresh, refrigerate in a plastic bag filled with air and securely closed. Store in the vegetable crisper section of the refrigerator. If leaves do become wilted, an ice water bath can revive them.

Place Melissa’s Herbs stem side down in a jar of water (similar to fresh flowers) and cover with a tightly closed plastic bag. Store away from ethylene-producing fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, bananas and peppers.

Chives may be snipped with scissors to the desired length.
