Most of us have clumps of chives popping up in our gardens each year . . . but a lot seems to go unharvested. Did you know you can chop it up and freeze it for use all year long? Grab a few handfuls and, using scissors, cut near the bottom. Discard the tough flower stems, rinse if needed, and chop into small pieces. Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper or a plastic bag (so the pieces won’t cling to the metal) and put in the freezer. Once frozen, the chopped pieces can be put in a container and stored in the freezer for future use. Use on baked potatoes, grilled cheese, egg salad and other sandwiches, on quesadillas, omelets, salads, and as garnish on soups. Harvest frequently. Chives can be a year-long gift from your garden.
