Fresh Chive Blossoms
Choose 50 or 100 clusters.
Chive blossoms are herb farmers’ secret treasures. Seasonal and relatively perishable, these pink-purple flowers aren’t usually found in grocery stores, but are highly prized for their beautiful, delicate appearance and robust spicy-onion flavor.
Chive blossoms average about ¾” by 1” (but can vary), and they are sold with some of the stalk attached (also edible & quite tasty).
They are a colorful, delicious addition to savory dishes and salads as a garnish or ingredient and can be used whole, off the stalk, torn into petals or minced.
Store chive flowers in their plastic clamshells in your refrigerator.
RECIPES & TIPS
Chive blossoms can be used as a garnish or salad ingredient whole, minced, or torn into petals. Their attached stalks can be separated and used as you would other fresh chives.
Chive blossoms are delicious minced & mixed into scrambled eggs. They can also be mixed into softened butter to produce colorful & tasty chive compound butter, which is a great addition to baked potatoes and steaks.
Some edible flowers may wilt or change color when exposed to vinegar, so if using a vinegar-based dressing on salads containing edible flowers, test it on a few blossoms ahead of time and/or add it at the last second.
