Spicy Saturday: Chives

It is #spicysaturday and today we are going to discuss: Chives 🌱⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Chives have been cultivated since the Middle Ages (from the 5th through the 15th centuries) but there is written history of their usage dating back almost 5000 years. As with many spices chives has several colorful legends. It is said that Romanian Gypsies used chives in fortune telling and it was believed that dried chive bunches that were hung outside of a house would ward off evil and disease.👍⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Chives provide an easy and colorful way to add a light onion touch to a large variety of dishes. Chives may be used as a substitute in any recipe that calls for chopped green onions and will produce a somewhat milder flavor. Sophisticated air drying processes allow chives to retain their color, texture and freshness best. We like chives because they seamlessly blend with practically any dish and their bright green color adds to the visual presentation. Even the smallest amount of moisture will quickly rehydrate them which allows you to add fresh garden herb flavor to your avocados 🥑, sour cream, cheese 🧀, cottage cheese, stir fries, eggs 🍳, vinegar's, salads 🥗, cream cheese, herb butters, cream and tomato sauces and soups 🍜⠀

Chives are often used in Goat Cheese 🧀, Salmon Tartare 🐟, Omelets 🍳, Ranch Dressing, and Sour Cream Sauce for Herring!! 👌⠀⠀⠀⠀
